## Quantitative Aptitude Topic of the day: Time Speed and Distance

Continuing our daily posts for Quantitative Aptitude, here are today’s concept and questions.

**1) Speed , Distance and Time are related in the following way**

Speed = Distance / Time

Distance = Speed* Time

**2) Average Speed = 2xy / x+y**

If an object travels at x km/hr for a certain distance and at y km/hr for the same distance.

The only thing to remember is that average speed is not just an average of two speeds i.e. x+y/2. It is equal to 2xy / x+y

**3) All values must be converted to same units .**

Conversion of km/ hr to m/ sec and m/ sec to km/ hr

Covert km to m by multiplying by 1000

Convert hr to seconds by multiplying with 60*60 = 3600

So x km/hr = x * 1000/3600 = x * 5/18 m/sec

**4) Time is inversely proportional to speed.i.e.e for the same distance if speed increases time taken decreases and vice versa. **

Attempt the following questions to check your level of preparedness for ratio proportion questions in competitive exams. You can answer the questions in comments section. Also make sure you checkout tomorrow’s Lunch update for **solutions** to these questions along with the **formulae **used in **VIDEO** format by our **Subject Expert.**

Can you tell us more about this? I’d like to find out more details.

Sometimes you may even have to reconfirm your details through

your own email. The first method is where one can build your

own tattoos with tools available online. In case of

outdoor photography you must select the right time

of day to consider a snap.

When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.

Is there any way you can remove people from that
