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) - 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? - Copiers

The new copier copying a folder of papers 5 min. faster than the old. The operator used new, but out of toner and exchange took 5 min. In that time copied on the old. The whole work has been done for 9 min. How long would the work done only by old copier? - Wind drift

The plane flies at 860 km/h, passing distance 3000 kilometers with the wind and once again against the wind for 6 h 59 min. What is the wind speed? - Water reservoir

The water reservoir is filled through one inlet 4 hours later than both together, then another inlet 9 hours later than both together. For how long is filled by each separately? - Two pipes

One pipe fill one-fifth volume 20 minutes before by second one. The two pipes together will fill the tank in two hours. How long is will fill tank each pipe separately? - Average age

The average age of all people at the celebration was equal to the number of people present. After the departure of one person who was 29 years old, average age was again equal to the number present. How many people were originally to celebrate? - Two masons

Two masons built the garage together - it took 18 days. If they worked independently, the other would work 15 days more than the first. For how many days would build the garage each mason himhelp? - Blueberries 2

Lenka and Martin collected eight liters of blueberries in two hours. How long will take to collect blueberries by Lenka itself, if we know that she collect all 2.5 hours less than Martin? - Wagons and cranes

Several of the same cranes unloaded 96 wagons. If there were 2 more cranes there would be less 8 wagons for each crane. How many cranes were here? - MO Z8-I-1 2018

Fero and David meet daily in the elevator. One morning they found that if they multiply their current age, they get 238. If they did the same after four years, this product would be 378. Determine the sum of the current ages of Fero and David. - Flying

The airplane from Prague to Bratislava was flying at a speed of 60 km/h less and back by 70 km/h greater than the original speed. What was the original speed if the plane returned to Prague according to the timetable? - Two workers

Two workers should fulfill certain task together for 5 days. If the first worker increased their performance twice and second twice fell, it took them just four days. For how many days would handle the entire task first worker himself? - Speed of car

The car went to a city that was 240 km away. If his speed increased by 8 km/h, it would reach the finish one hour earlier. Determine its original speed. - The cruise ship
