Railway

Between points A, B, whose horizontal distance is 1.5 km railway line has 8promile climb. Between points B, C with horizontal distance of 900 m is climb 14promile. Calculate differences of altitudes between points A and C.

Correct result:

x =  24.6 m

Solution:

x=1500 8/1000+900 14/1000=1235 m=24.6 m
