An aeroplane covers a certain distance at a speed of 240 kmph in 5 hours. To cover the same distance in 1 hours, it must travel at a speed of:
300 kmph
360 kmph
600 kmph
720 kmph
Explanation:

Distance = (240 x 5) = 1200 km.

Speed = Distance/Time

Speed = 1200/(5/3) km/hr.     [We can write 1 hours as 5/3 hours]

 Required speed = 1200 x 3 km/hr = 720 km/hr. 5

How to give 3/5 ?

It is (3*1)+2=5

So it 5/3 hours and now speed = distance/time that's why 3/5.
(3)

The distance wants cover with 1+(2/3)hour is 1200km.

1 + (2/3) = (3+2)/3 = 5/3.

speed=Distance/time
speed=1200km/(5/3)
speed=1200km*(3/5)
speed=720km/hr

D= S*T that's why 240 * 5.

Hello! Shwetha, You want to take it as comparison of two plan.

First Plan : 240km * 5hr = 1200km/hr
Second Plan: ? *1+(2/3)= 1200km/hr

How to give 3/5?

Correct mohit. !

Distance=240*5=1200
1+2/3=5/3
REQUIRED SPEED=(1200/5/3)
=(1200*3/5)
=720KM/HR

d1=d2
240*5=x*(5/3)
3600=x*5
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.
5*240=1200km
1*(sp)=1200km

.'.Speed=1200km/hr this is correct or not ?
