Question 10

Ankush and Babulal walk around circular track.They start at 9 a.m. from the same point in the opposite directions.Ankush and Babulal walk at a speed of 3 rounds per hour and 5 rounds per hour respectively. How many times shall they cross each other until 10.30 a.m.?


Given speed of Ankush = 3 rounds per hour = 1  round per 20 min

Whereas speed of Babulal = 5 rounds per hour = 1 round per 12 min.

Let us consider Ankush as stationery at the starting point.

The relative speed of Babulal with respect to Ankush = 3 rounds per hour + 5 rounds per hour = 8 rounds per hour

This implies, In one hour Babulal crosses Ankush 8 times.

So, starting from 9.00 am to 10.30 am i.e., 1.5 hours or 90 min, Babulal crosses Ankush 12 times.
