## 4. Albert is travelling on his cycle and has calculated to reach point A at 2 P.M. if he travels at 10 kmph, he will reach there at 12 noon if he travels at 15 kmph. At what speed must he travel to reach A at 1 P.M.?

**Answer:**

**Option C**

**Explanation :**

Let's Assume the distance travelled Albert = x km.

Formula Used: Time = Distance/Speed

so (x/10 - x/15) = 2 hrs

=> (3x - 2x)/30 = 2 hrs.

=> (3x - 2x) = 60

x = 60 km.

Time taken to travel 60 km at 10 km/hr = 60/10 hrs = 6 hrs.

Formula Used: Speed = Distance/Time

So, Albert started 6 hours before 2 P.M. i.e @ 8 A.M.

Required speed = 60/5 kmph. = 12 kmph.
