Two cyclists 2

At the same time, two cyclists left the towns A and B at constant speeds. The first one going from town A to town B, and the second one from town B to town A. At one point of the trip they met. After they met, the first cyclist arrived at town B in 36min, the second cyclist arrived at town A in 25min. How long did it take for the first cyclist to reach the meeting point after leaving town A?

Result

t1 =  30 min

Solution:

s1=v1 t1=v2 25 s2=v1 36=v2 t2 t1=t2  v1 t1=v2 25 v1 36=v2 t1  t1/36=25/t1 t12=25 36  t1=25 36=30 mins_{1}=v_{1} \ t_{1}=v_{2} \cdot \ 25 \ \\ s_{2}=v_{1} \cdot \ 36=v_{2} \ t_{2} \ \\ t_{1}=t_{2} \ \\ \ \\ v_{1} \ t_{1}=v_{2} \cdot \ 25 \ \\ v_{1} \cdot \ 36=v_{2} \ t_{1} \ \\ \ \\ t_{1}/36=25/t_{1} \ \\ t_{1}^2=25 \cdot \ 36 \ \\ \ \\ t_{1}=\sqrt{ 25 \cdot \ 36 }=30 \ \text{min}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
