 Example: George walks from his house to office at a speed of 3 miles/hour. and arrives at the office 25 min late, but when he walked at 4 miles/hour, he reached the office 15 min before time. Find the distance between his house and office. solution: Let the distance between house and office be x miles. Time taken when speed is 3 miles/hour = x/3 hours. Time taken when speed is 4 miles/hour = x/4 hours. Difference = x/3 - x / 4 = (4x-3x)/12 = x/12 hours. = x / 12 * 60 = 5x min. Difference given in the problem = 25 + 15. = 40 min. Therefore, 5x = 40 x = 40/5 x = 8 miles. Directions: Solve the following problems. Also write at least 5 examples of your own.
