Question 84

# Two cyclists P and Q cycle at 20 km/hr and 16 km/hr towards each other respectively. What was the distance (in kms) between them when they started if they met after 40 minutes?

Solution

Distance b/w them = distance travelled by P + distance travelled by Q=  $$20 \times \frac{40}{60} + 16 \times \frac{40}{60}$$ = $$36 \times \frac{2}{3} = 24$$

So the answer is option D.
