# Two trains, A ans B start from stations X and Y towards each other, they take 4 hours 48 minutes and 3 hours 20 minutes to reach Y and X respectively after they meet. If train A is moving at 45 km/hr, then the speed of the train B is?

A. 60 km/hr

B. 64.80 km/hr

C. 54 km/hr

D. 37.5 km/hr

\eqalign{ & {\text{In these type of questions use the given}} \cr & {\text{below formula to save your valuable time}} \cr & \frac{{{{\text{S}}_1}}}{{{{\text{S}}_2}}}{\text{ = }}\sqrt {\frac{{{{\text{T}}_2}}}{{{{\text{T}}_1}}}} {\text{ }} \cr & {\text{Where }}{{\text{S}}_1}{\text{,}}{{\text{S}}_2}{\text{ and }}{{\text{T}}_1}{\text{, }}{{\text{T}}_2}{\text{ are the respective}} \cr & {\text{speeds and times of the objects}} \cr & \Rightarrow \frac{{45}}{{{{\text{S}}_2}}} = \sqrt {3\frac{1}{3} \div 4\frac{4}{5}} \cr & {\text{ = }}{{\text{S}}_2}{\text{ = 45}} \times \frac{6}{5}{\text{ = 54 km/hr}} \cr & \therefore {\text{Required speed = 54 km/hr}} \cr}
