# Velocity + system of equations - math problems

The velocity of an object is the time rate of change of its position. Velocity is a specification of an object's speed and direction of motion (e.g. 20 m/s to the south).

In everyday use and in kinematics, the speed of an object is the magnitude of its velocity (the rate of change of its position) - scalar.

• Book
Alena read a book at speed 15 pages per day. If she read twice as fast she should read a book four days earlier. How many pages have a book?
• The train
The train passed the observer in the 20s and passed through a 1500m tunnel in 2 minutes. Calculate the speed (km/h) and train length.
• Water current speed.
Two cities along the river are 100 km apart. The powerboat downstream runs for 4 hours, upstream for 10 hours. Determines the river's current speed.
• Distance between two cities
Car went from A to B 4h. On the way back, the car was up 15km / h faster. The return trip took 48 minutes. Shorter than the way there. Find the distance of the cities A and B.
• Car
Car goes some distance in 3 hours and 20 minutes. If it increase speed by 10 km/h, i goes this distance in 2.5 hours. Calculate the distance.
• Truck
Truck went for 4 hours and 30 minutes. If truck increase speed by 11 km/h, went same distance in 2 hours. Calculate this distance.
• 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.
• Translations
If I going to translate the book 6 pages per day I translate it 4 days earlier than if I translated 5 pages a day. If I translate 4 pages a day I translate it for how many days.....?
• Two trucks
Two trucks left cities A and B against each other and met after an hour. The first car came to B 27 minutes later than the second car to A. Calculate the car speed if the distance between cities A, B is 90 km.
• The car
The car has traveled the distance between A and B for four hour. If we increased the average by 17 km/h the car travel this distance an hour earlier. Determine the initial speed of the car and the distance between A and B.
• Scouts
The boys from scout group traveled 5 days distance 115 km. Every day walked 1.5 km less than the previous day. How many kilometers scouts walked in the first day?
• Walkers
From points A and B simultaneously started against each other two walkers. After meeting both continue to B. Second walker came to B 2 hours before the first walker. It's speed is 2.7 times of speed of the first pedestrian. How many hours went pedestrians
• Ships
At 8:40 the ship set sail at 12 km/h. At 19:10 followed by at 29 km/h sail boat. When sail boat catches up the ship? How many minutes will catch up took?
• Car and motorcyclist
A car and a motorcyclist rode against each other from a distance of 190 km. The car drove 10km/h higher than the motorcyclist and started half an hour later. It met a motorcyclist in an hour and thirty minutes. Determine their speeds.
• Workers
Ten workers must pave road street for 22 working days. After four days were for speeding up work added two more workers. a) After how many work days now workers completes the paved road? b) How many working days it took a total paved road?
• The tourist
The tourist traveled 190km in 5 hours. Part of the journey passed at 5 km/h. The rest he went by bus at a speed of 60 km/h. How long has a bus gone?
• Train delay
Due to a breakdown, the train lost 16 minutes of standing on the track behind Brno. He "eliminated" this delay so that after the start, the 80 km long section went at a speed 10 km/h higher than originally planned. What speed was it and what was it suppos
• Train
A passenger train traveled for 2 hours 74 km. 3.1 hours after its departure started fast train and caught it on 186 km. How many km/h is different its average speeds?
• Average speed
The average speed of a good cyclist is 30 km/h. The average speed of the less able is 20 km/h. They both set off on the same route at the same time. Good cyclist drove it 2 hours earlier. How long was the route?
• Trains
From station 130 km away started passenger train and after 2.2 hours after the express train, which travels 37 km an hour more. Express train finish journey 7 minutes early. Calculate the average speed of this two trains.
