- Parallelogram

The perimeter of the parallelogram is 117 cm. The length of one side is 1.9-times longer than the length of the shorter side. What is the length of sides of a parallelogram? - Subway

Subway train went between two stations that gradually accelerated for 26 seconds and reached a speed of 72 km/h. At this rate, went 56 seconds. Then 16 seconds slowed to a stop. What was the distance between the stations? - Chase

Paul travel at 60 km/h. After 18 km ride found that he forgot an important book. His brother Thomas behind him carrying it. How fast must Thomas go to catch up with Paul in 31 minutes? - Sisters

Sisters Hanka and Vera goes mostly tograndmother by bicycle. Journey took Hanka 30 minutes and Vera 20 minutes. How long will Vera catch up with Hanka when started from home five minutes later than Hanka? - Abyss

Stone was pushed into the abyss: 2 seconds after we heard hitting the bottom. How deep is the abyss (neglecting air resistance)? (gravitational acceleration g = 9.81 m/s^{2}and the speed of sound in air v = 343 m/s) - Aircraft

The aircraft has in a fuel tank 68 hl of aviation fuel and flight consumes 3.6 liters of fuel. Identify the function, which expresses the dependence of the volume of fuel in tank on the track distance plane flew by. How many hectolites of fuel is still in - Moon

We see Moon in the perspective angle 28'. Moon's radius is 1740 km at the time of the full moon. Calculate the mean distance of the Moon from the Earth. - Car

The driver of a car is to get to 608 km distant city. From atlas found that 162 km will have to pass through the cities at average speed 48 km/h. Remainder of the journey pass outside the cities at average speed 116 km/h. Calculate how many hours it will t - Tourist Jirka

Distance between the points A and B is 13.5 km. Jirka went from point A to point B unknown speed and for an unknown period of time. Back to the point A went slower by 3 km/h which means that went 20 minutes more. How long Jirka took the return journey? - Bomber

Bomber flies 10 km at 600 km/h. At what horizontal distance from the target, must pilot drop the bomb to hit the target? Don't care about air resistance and consider the gravitational acceleration g=9.81 m/s^{2}. - Mountain railway

Height difference between points A, B of railway line is 38.5 meters, their horizontal distance is 3.5 km. Determine average climb in permille up the track. - Two cars

From the town A to town B started two cars. The first at 7:00 at average speed 60 km per hour, the second at 10:00 at average speed 100 km per hour. The first car will not stay in B, and on the way back meet the second car at half way from A to B. At what. - Copper plate

Copper plate length 3.2 m and width 50 cm weighs 55.42 kg. What is the plate thick, if 1 m^{3}of copper weighs about 8700 kg? - Swing

A child weighing 12 kg is sitting on a swing at a distance of 130 cm from the axis of rotation. How far away from the axis of rotation (center) must sit down his mother weighs 57 kg if she wants to be swing in balance? - Map 2

At what scale is made map if the distance 8.2 km corresponds on the map segment 5 cm long? - Cubes

Carol with cut bar 12 cm x 12 cm x 135 cm to the cubes. Find the sum of all the surfaces of the resulting cubes. - Paul and Honza

Honza went to chat on a bike without a break 4.0 hours. Paul the same way without breaks 50 minutes longer. The difference between the speeds of the two boys was the one kilometer per hour. How fast was Paul, if you know that the speed of the boys did not. - Tourist

Tourist walk at 4.1 km/h. Every 5 km have 20-minute break. How many kilometers passed, when started at 4:40 and finished at 10:30? - Square

If we increase side of the square, increase its area of 63%. What is the percentage we increase side of the square? - Square tiles

The room has dimensions 12 meters and 5.6 meters. Determine the number of square tiles and their largest dimension to exactly cover the floor.
