Tips & Tricks: Speed Time & Distance

# Speed Time and Distance Tips and Tricks for Government Exams

### Theory

This type of problem are given in Quantitative Aptitude which is a very essential paper in banking exam. Under below  given some formula and more example for your better practice.

### Formula

• Distance = Speed × Time
• Time = Distance/Speed
• Speed = Distance / Time
• Convert Km/h to M/s =Km/h * 5/18 = m/s or m/sec *18/5 = km/h
• Calculate Average Speed = 2xy/x+y
• Two person may walk in same direction or in opposite direction.

### Different Methods

• Average speed when time is same
Sa = S1 + S2 /2
• Average speed when distances are same
Sa = 2(S1S2)/ (S1+S2)
• Least time to meet in a circular race
T1, T2, T3, …. = Individual times taken by each racer to complete one circle.

## FAQs on Speed Time and Distance Tips and Tricks for Government Exams

 1. What is the formula to calculate speed, time, and distance?
Ans. The formula to calculate speed is speed = distance ÷ time. The formula to calculate distance is distance = speed × time. The formula to calculate time is time = distance ÷ speed.
 2. How can I find the speed if I know the distance and time?
Ans. If you know the distance and time, you can find the speed by dividing the distance by the time. For example, if the distance is 100 kilometers and the time taken is 2 hours, then the speed would be 100 km ÷ 2 hours = 50 km/h.
 3. How can I find the distance if I know the speed and time?
Ans. If you know the speed and time, you can find the distance by multiplying the speed by the time. For example, if the speed is 60 km/h and the time taken is 3 hours, then the distance would be 60 km/h × 3 hours = 180 kilometers.
 4. How can I find the time if I know the distance and speed?
Ans. If you know the distance and speed, you can find the time by dividing the distance by the speed. For example, if the distance is 500 kilometers and the speed is 100 km/h, then the time taken would be 500 km ÷ 100 km/h = 5 hours.
 5. Can I use different units for speed, time, and distance in the formulas?
Ans. Yes, you can use different units for speed, time, and distance in the formulas. However, make sure to use consistent units throughout the calculations. For example, if the distance is given in meters and the speed is given in kilometers per hour, convert one of the units to match the other before performing the calculations.
