Speed, Time and Distance:
Speed = 

Distance 

, 
Time = 

Distance 

, 
Distance = (Speed x Time).

If the ratio of the speeds of A and B is a : b, then the ratio of the
the times taken by then to cover the same distance is

Suppose a man covers a certain distance at x km/hr and an equal distance at y km/hr. Then,
the average speed during the whole journey is 

2xy 

km/hr. 
x + y
