# Question 4:

A train covers a distance of 480 km at a uniform speed. If the speed had been 8 km/h less, it would have taken 3 hours more to cover the same distance. Find the original speed of the train.                [CBSE    2020]

## Solution:

Let the original speed of the train  = x km/h.

Time of journey of 480 km = hours

Time taken to cover a journey of 480 km with speed of (x – 8) km/h = hours

Now according to the question.         ⇒ x(x – 40) + 32(x – 40) = 0\$

⇒  (x – 40)(x + 32) = 0

⇒ x = 40,  -32(Not possible)

Thus the original speed of train is = 40 km/h.

# Question 2:

The sum of areas of two squares is 157 m². If the sum of their perimeters is 68 m, find the sides of the two squares.                     [CBSE 2019]

# Question 3:

If the equation (1 + m²)x² + 2 mcx + c² – a² = 0 has equal roots then show that c² = a²(1 + m²).
