Car goes from point A to point B at speed 78 km/h and back at 82 km/h. If went there and back at speed 81 km/h journey would take five minutes less. What is the distance between points A and B? - Car

The car goes from point A to point B at speed 86 km/h and back 53 km/h. If it goes there and back at speed 67 km/h trip would take 10 minutes shorter. What is the distance between points A and B? - Pedestrian up-down hill

Pedestrian goes for a walk first at the plane at 4 km/h, then uphill 3 km/h. Then it is in the middle of the route, turns back, and goes downhill at speed 6 km/h. The total walk was 6 hours. How many kilometers went pedestrian? - Two cities

The car goes from city A to city B at an average speed of 70 km/h, back at an average speed of 50 km/h. If it goes to B and back at an average speed of 60 km/h, the whole ride would take 8 minutes less. What is the distance between cities A and B? - Between two bus stops
