Why we are writing 3.2*10 ?

Dilepkumar said:

They asking only remainig 40 over run rate. So why use of first 10 over?

How do we arrive at the solution.? What is the logic?

Pratik Mehta said:

@Kavita : Run rate * overs = runs scored.

So now Run rate = Runs scored/required / overs.

There 282 - (3.2 x 10) = Runs required

Remaining overs are 40.

So now Run rate = Runs scored/required / overs.

There 282 - (3.2 x 10) = Runs required

Remaining overs are 40.

Why do we minus 282-(3.2*10)...?

Muhundhan said:

So we calculate the runs in the first 10 overs

first 10 overs they got 32 runs

remaining 40 overs they got 250

250 / 40 =6.25

first 10 overs they got 32 runs

remaining 40 overs they got 250

250 / 40 =6.25

Why are you minus that 282 runs?

Tarun said:

282 are not minus,here ((3.2(current run rate)*10(overs))=32runs)

are subtracted from total required runs,so 282-32=250 are the runs required in other 40 overs,

so required run rate=

250/40=6.25 runs per over.

are subtracted from total required runs,so 282-32=250 are the runs required in other 40 overs,

so required run rate=

250/40=6.25 runs per over.

How to solve given problem:.

Rajana traveled a journey of 500km with speed of 50km/hr for 5 liter and traveled withe speed of 60km/hr for 5hr and then is last 5hr covers a distance of 700km and after taking rest of 3 hr again traveled. For 2 hr by covering a distance 120km find average of speed.
