Speed and Time

Vedic Maths trick to find Speed and Time

Q1) Suresh walking 1/2th of his usual speed.Find the change in time taken to cover a particular distance .If the usual time to cover the distance is 40 minutes.

Formula of speed :

Usual Time = Numerator * Time

Putting the value in the farmula:

Let the Time = A minutes

40 = 1 * A

40 / 1 = A

A = minutes let

Change in time will be mintutes.


Q2) Suresh walking 1/3th of his usual speed.Find the change in time taken to cover a particular distance .If the usual time to cover the distance is 20 minutes.

Formula of speed :

Numerator * Time / Difference of Numerator and Denominator = Usual Time

This formula is used only when difference between numerator and denominator is more then 1.

Putting the value in the farmula:

Let the Time = A minutes

1 * A / 2 = 20

A = 20 * 2 / 1

A = 40 / 1

A = 40 minutes let

Change in time will be 40 mintutes.
