Train speed

Two guns were fired from the same place at an interval of 10 minutes and 30 seconds, but a person in a train approaching the place hears second shot 10 minutes after the first. The speed of the train (in km/hr), supposing that sound travels at 340 m/s is:


v =  61.2 km/h


Solution in text v =
