QA – Placement Quizzes | Time Speed Distance | Question 10
A train covers a journey of 4 stations connected to form a square at speeds of 20, 40, 60 and 80 km/hr. What is the average speed of train for this journey?
Explanation: Speed = distance/time
Say, side of square = y km
time t1 = y/20
t2 = y/40, t3 = y/60 and t4 = y/80
Total time = (12+6+4+3)y/240
speed = total distance/total time
= 4y/(t1+t2+t3+t4) = 4y*240/25y = 38.4 km/hr
