Saha travelling at a speed of 84kmph is 6 km behind Nihal. After 30 mins, Saha will be 6 km ahead of Nihal. Find the speed of Nihal. Solution: speed x time = distance T = 30 min = 1/2 hour (84  X) 1/2 = 12 ( here X is Nihal speed) X = 60kmph. Why time is taken as 30 mins if they mention after 30 mins so it should be more than 30 min?
