    Given:

    Total Distance = 600 km.

    average speed was reduced = 200 km/hr

    the time of flight increased = 30 minutes

    Formula Used:

    ∵ Average Speed = Total Distance / Time

    Calculations:

    Let, the original duration of flight be t hrs.

    So, original average speed = 600/t

    Due to bad weather speed of trip is reduced by 200 km/hr and time of flight is increased by 30 minutes i.e. 0.5 hr.

    ∴ Reduced average speed = (600/t) – 200

    And New duration of flight = (t + 0.5) hrs

    So, the new average speed = 600/(t + 0.5)

    Equating,

    ⇒600t−200=600t+0.5⇒3t−1=3t+0.5⇒3−tt=3t+0.5

    ⇒ t2 + 0.5t – 1.5 = 0

    ⇒ 2t2 + t – 3 = 0

    ⇒ 2t2 – 2t + 3t – 3 = 0

    ⇒ (t – 1)(2t + 3) = 0

    ⇒ (t – 1) = 0 ∴ t = 1 hr

    ∴ The duration of the flight is 1 hr.

    Question 32 (Choice 2) In a flight of 600km, an aircraft was slowed down due to bad weather. Its average speed for the trip was reduced by 200 km/hr from its usual speed and the time of the flight increased by 30 min. Find the scheduled duration of the flight.Let the speed of aircarft be x km/hr Normal speed Distance = 600 km Speed = x km/hr Speed = 𝐷𝑖𝑠𝑡𝑎𝑛𝑐𝑒/𝑇𝑖𝑚𝑒 x = 600/𝑇𝑖𝑚𝑒 Time = 𝟔𝟎𝟎/𝒙 Speed reduced by 200 km/h Distance = 600 km Speed = (x − 200) km/hr Speed = 𝐷𝑖𝑠𝑡𝑎𝑛𝑐𝑒/𝑇𝑖𝑚𝑒 x − 200 = 𝟔𝟎𝟎/𝑻𝒊𝒎𝒆 Time = 𝟔𝟎𝟎/(𝒙 − 𝟐𝟎𝟎) Given that Its average speed for the trip was reduced by 200 km/hr from its usual speed and the time of the flight increased by 30 min Time when speed reduced − Time normal = 30 minutes Time when speed reduced − Time normal = 𝟏/𝟐 hour 𝟔𝟎𝟎/(𝒙 − 𝟐𝟎𝟎)−𝟔𝟎𝟎/𝒙=𝟏/𝟐 (600𝑥 − 600(𝑥 − 200))/(𝑥(𝑥 − 200))=1/2 (600𝑥 − 600𝑥 + 120000)/(𝑥^2 − 200𝑥)=1/2 120000/(𝑥^2 − 200𝑥)=1/2 2 × 120000 = x2 − 200x 240000 = x2 − 200x x2 – 200x − 240000 = 0 x2 − 200x – 240000 = 0 Comparing with ax2 + bx + c = 0 a = 1, b = −200, c = −240000 Roots of the equation are given by x = (− 𝑏 ± √(𝑏^2 − 4𝑎𝑐))/2𝑎 Putting values x = (−(−200) ± √(〖(−200)〗^2 − 4 × 1 × (−240000) ))/(2 × 1) x = (200 ± √(40000 + 4 × 240000))/2 x = (200 ± √(40000 + 960000))/2 x = (200 ± √1000000)/2 x = (200 ± √(〖10〗^6 ))/2 x = (𝟐𝟎𝟎 ± 𝟏𝟎𝟎𝟎)/𝟐 Hence x = 600, x = –400 are the roots of the equation x = (200 + 1000)/2 x = 1200/2 x = 600 x = (200 − 1000)/2 x = (−800)/2 x = –400We know that Speed of flight = x So, x cannot be negative ∴ x = 600 is the solution So, Speed of flight = x = 600 km/hr But, we need to find the scheduled duration of the flight. Scheduled Duration = Time = 𝟔𝟎𝟎/𝒙 = 600/600 = 1 hour

    , an aircraft was slowed down due to bad weather. Its average speed for the trip was reduced by

    200 km/hr

    and the time of flight increased by

    30

    minutes. What is the duration of the flight?

    Open in App Solution

    Step 1: Given

    Total distance, d=600 km

    Average speed was reduced by

    200 km/hr

    Time of the flight increased by

    30 minutes

    Step 2: Find the new average speed of the flight

    Let t

    be the original duration of the flight

    The original average speed of the flight was

    600t

    Hence, the new average speed is

    s=

    Original speed - Reduced speed

    =600t-200

    Step 3: Find the new duration of the flight

    Let the new duration be

    t1 t1=

    Original duration + Increased time

    =t+0.5 hr

    Step 4: Find the new average speed

    The new average speed

    =dt1 =600t+0.5

    Step 5: Equate the new average speeds

    600t-200=600t+0.5

    Dividing by 200 on both the sides, we get

    ⇒ 3t-1=3t+0.5 ⇒t2+0.5t-1.5=0 ⇒ (t-1)(2t+3)=0 ⇒ t=1

    Therefore, the duration of the flight is

    1

    hour.
