Q:
# a turtle can walk 1/12 of a kilometer in an hour. the turtle is 1/5 of a kilometer away from the pond. at this speed, how long will it take the turtle to reach the pond

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer :
Turtle will require [tex]\frac{12}{5}[/tex] that is 2.4 hrs to reach the pond.
Solution:
Given that A turtle can walk [tex]\frac{1}{12}[/tex] km in an hour.
So speed of turtle = [tex]\frac{1}{12}[/tex] kmphTurtle is [tex]\frac{1}{5}[/tex] of a kilometer away from pond.
So distance turtle need to cover to reach the pond = [tex]\frac{1}{5}[/tex] km
We need to calculate time required by turtle to reach the pond.
As time = [tex]\frac{distance}{speed}[/tex]So time required to cover [tex]\frac{1}{5}[/tex] km at speed of [tex]\frac{1}{12}[/tex] kilometer per hour is as follows
Time required = ([tex]\frac{1}{5}[/tex]) divided by [tex]\frac{1}{12}[/tex] = [tex]\frac{12}{5}[/tex] = 2.4 hours.
Hence turtle will require 12/5 that is 2.4 hrs to reach the pond
