Please find below the solution to the asked query:

Case I. When the rate of drum beating is 40 per minute

Therefore, the interval between two drum beats = 60/40 = 1.5 s
Let the distance between the mountain and the man be x m.
Speed of sound, v=2xt=2x1.5=4x3   .....(1)
Case II. When the man moves 80 m towards the mountain

Speed of sound, v=2(x80)t=2(x80)1=2x160   .....(2)From eq. (1) and (2),2x160=4x36x480=4x2x=480x=240 m

Hope this information will clear your doubts about the numerical on echo.
