Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:Distance cover by both the Car's is equal Step-by-step explanation:Given as :For car A The initial speed = 25 mile per hourThe time taken = 3 hoursSo, Discover cover = Speed × TimeI.e D = 25 mile per hour × 3 hourSo, D = 75 milesAgain The speed = 35 mile per hourThe time taken = 4 hoursSo, Discover cover = Speed × TimeI.e d = 35 mile per hour × 4 hourSo, d = 140 miles∴ Total distance cover by car A = D + dor, Total distance cover by car A = 75 miles + 140 miles = 215 milesFor car BThe speed = 43 mile per hourThe time taken = 5 hoursSo, Discover cover = Speed × TimeI.e x = 43 mile per hour × 5 hourSo, x = 215 milesOr , Total distance cover by car B = 215 miles Hence from the calculation it is clear that distance cover by both the Car's is equal .
