The difficulty level is easy-moderate. It is pretty easy if you learn basic formula for speed and distance problems along with short cut tricks.

Basic Formula for Speed and Distance:

  • Distance = Speed * Time
  • Speed = Distance/Time
  • Time = Distance/Speed


Short cut tricks for Speed and Distance:

Speed is inversely proportional to time

Speed ∝ 1 ÷ Time

We know, km/hr is bigger value and m/sec is smaller so what we do to convert bigger value into smaller?

We divide by a value which has greater denominator than numerator. so to convert km/hr into m/sec we multiply by 5÷18, where 18 (denominator) is greater than 5 (numerator). x km/hr = x × 5÷18 m/sec Similarly, To convert m/sec to km/hr, we do the reverse process. x × 5÷18 m/sec = x km/hr

Example Problem:

Question – A Bus covers a distance in 18 hours at a speed of 60 Km/hr. If a bike covers 270 kms more than the bus at the same time, what would be the bike’s average speed?

Answer – As we know, D = S*T

So, Distance covered by Bus = 60*18 = 1080 Kms

Now,       S= D/T

So, Speed of the bike is = 1080+270/18 = 1350/18 = 75 km/hr
