x=720(km/hr) If both are available in kmphr other we convert them as same.
It is very useful to students. I like this site.

I have doubt in 5/3.
.'.Speed=1200km/hr this is correct or not ?

Actually this is not speed, it must be the distance. As it is derived from the formula s*t=d. Hope it clears the confusion.

Aeroplane travels total of 1200km to cover same distance in 1 hour it should travel wit 1200 kmph right but how come 720 kmph ?

Please explain in detail the calculation of coverting to 5/3

observe the formula carefully.
Distance = (240 x 5) = 1200 km.
Speed = Distance/Time
it says speed equals distance travelled by time taken and hence,
Speed = 1200/(5/3) km/hr.
since time is 5/3, the denominator(here it is 3) of denominator(the whole 5/3)becomes numerator. Therefore the following.
Required speed = 1200 x 3 km/hr = 720 km/hr.

Sir/madam please explain in detail. I cant understand.

Ramkumar,nothng hard in tat.first knw formula
now read the question.they given aeroplance covers distance of 240 km/hr in 5 hours so we need the total distance of 5 hours...
now we have to speed cover in 1+2/3 hours=5/3 hours

Hi, we know that speed=distance/time
Here distance is constant for different times
so speed o< 1/time
here s2 is the speed when time is 5/3
remember when distance is constant speed o< 1/time
if speed constant time o< distance
if time is constant speed o< distance

I have not understood the step where you have taken 1200*3/5 instead of 1200*5/3 ?
(Mon, Aug 8, 2011 12:47:31 PM)
This is an example of inverse variation
(Fri, Aug 19, 2011 08:06:37 PM)
Time decrease by 3times. 5/3=1*2/3.
Therefore speed increases by 3 times=3x240=720km/hr.

Those who says Answer as 720 please read the question. Its given that speed for a time of 1Hr should be foun out, not for 1+ (2/3) hrs.
(Sat, Dec 17, 2011 10:25:47 AM)
Even if the aeroplane travels in the speed of 720km/hr it can the distance of 1152km..... As the nearest answer is 720km/hr.
