# A distance is covered in 2 hours travelling at 60kmph. What will be the time taken if the same distance is covered at 50kmph?

Mar 9, 2017

Time taken to cover 120 kms is either $2.4$ hrs or $2$ hr $24$ mts

#### Explanation:

Speed per hour $= 60 k m$
The distance covered in 2 hours $= 60 \times 2 = 120$ kms

Total distance covered is $120$ kms

The same distance has to be covered at a speed of $50$ kms/hour

Time taken to cover 50 kms is $= 1$ hr
Time taken to cover 1 km is $= \frac{1}{50}$hr
Time taken to cover 120 kms is $\frac{1}{50} \times 120 = 2.4$ hrs

[$0.4$ hour is $0.4 \times 60 = 24$ minutes}

Time taken to cover 120 kms is either $2.4$ hrs or $2$ hr $24$ mts
