Questions on Time & Distance – Maths Practice Set

There are two or three questions on Time and Distance in any of the competitive exams. Math is a compulsory part of any of the exams by SSC/IBPS/States’ Boards and Commissions. So here is one practice set for Time and Distance Questions/Sums. Hope this exercise shall help you in understanding the concept of Time and Distance Questions.

First of all learn some important formulae –

How to get Speed ?

Speed – Distance/time

Time Formulae –

Time – Distance/Speed

Distance – Speed * Time

Now get ready to do some Practice set on Time and Distance –
