• Speed of cyclist is 11.4 km/hr

## Given:

• A cyclist covers 950 meter in 5 minutes

## Tofind:

• His speed in kilometer per hour

## Solution:

Firstly we have to find the distance and time

Given,

• Distance covered by cyclist = 950m then,

》950 × 1/100km

》95/100

》0.95km

Hence,Distance is 0.95km

Also Given that ,

• Times = 5 minutes then,

As we know that,

》5 × 1/60 minutes

》1/12 hours

Hence, Time is 1/12 hours

Now we have to find his speed in km per hour

As we know that,

• Speed = Distance/ Time

》Speed = Distance/Time

》0.95/1/12

》0.95 × 12

》11.4 kilometer per hour

Hence Speed of cyclist is 11.4 km/hr

### MoreExplanation:

• Speed = Distance/Time
• Distance = Speed × Time
• Time = Distance/Speed

11.4 km/h (approx.)

Step-by-step explanation:

1 minute = 60 seconds

5 minutes = 5 × 60 = 300 seconds

speed = distance ÷ time = 950 ÷ 300 = 3.167 m/s

1 km/h = 1000/3600 m/s = 5/18 m/s

1 m/s = 18/5 km/h

3.167 m/s = 3.167 × 18/5 = 11.4012 km/h

Final answer = 11.4 km/h (approx.)
