 Linear-systems/311078: Trains A & B are traveling in the same direction on parallel tracks. Tran A is traveling 80 miles per hour and Train B is traveling 90 miles per hour. Train A passes a station at 12:00am. If Train B passes the same station 12:40am, at what time will Train B catch up to Train A? When will Train B catch up with Train A? What is the time and if am or pm? Please help. Thank you. 1 solutions Answer 222540 by mananth(12270)   on 2010-06-03 20:45:38 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Train A speed = 80 mph Train B 90 mph Train A is ahead of train B at the station by 40 minutes.( 2/3 hours) By the time train B reaches the station train A has traveled 80 * 2/3 miles =160/3 miles to a point say P. Let the distance from point P to the point where train B overtakes train A be x . Train B travels 160/3 + x miles in the same time the train A travels x miles time taken by train A = x/80 hours time taken by train B = x+160/3 / 90 . x/80 = 3x+160 / 3 divided by 90 x/80 = 3x+160 /3 * 1/90 x/80= 3x+ 160 / 270 270x = 80(3x+160) 270x=240x +12800 30x= 12800 x=426.66 miles time taken by train A t travel x miles = 426.66/80 =5.33 hours. This is the same time taken by train B to cross train A

If one of the pumps working alone can fill the cistern in 6 hours, how long would it take the other pump working alone?1 solutions Answer 221967 by mananth(12270)   on 2010-06-01 19:11:16 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Let filling the cistern be = 1 job. Both pumps can do the job in 4 hours. So they can do 1/4 of the job in 1 hour. . one pump does the job in 6 hours . So it does 1/6th. of the job in 1 hour. . Job done by both - job done by one of them = job done by the other in 1 hour. . 1/4 - 1/6 =3-2 / 12 =1/12. The other pump does 1/12th job in 1 hour. . So it takes 12 hours to do the complete job of filing the cistern alone.
