Given,

Length of the two trains is 150 m and 100 m respectively.

Speed of the two trains is 39 km/hr and 21 km/hr.

Formula:

If the speed of the two trains is x km/hr and y km/hr respectively (x > y).

Relative speed, if opposite directions = (x + y) km/hr

Relative speed, if same directions = (x – y) km/hr

Speed = Distance/Time

1 km/hr = 5/18 m/

Calculation:

According to the question

Sum of length of the both trains = (150 + 100) = 250 m

⇒ (39 + 21) × 5/18 = 250/Time

⇒ 60 × 5/18 = 250/Time

⇒ 50/3 = 250/Time

⇒ Time = 250 × (3/50)

∴ Time = 15 seconds
