In a flight of 600 kms, an aircraft was slowed down due to bad weather and the average speed was reduced by 200 km/hour and the time of flight increased by 30 minutes. What is the total duration of flight?

Given:

Distance Covered by flight =600kms

Speed reduced by a flight = 200km/hour

Time increased by a flight = 30 min (1/2 hours)

ToFind

Total duration of the flight.

FormulaApplied:

We have to calculate the total duration occured by the flight, and it’s given that the flight of distance 600kms reduced the speed by 200km/hour and increased time by 30 minutes. Hence the Reduced Speed can be calculated by reducing the New speed from the original speed of the flight.

Given:ToFindFormulaApplied:[tex]\underline{\boxed{\sf Reduced_{(Speed)}=Original_{(Speed)}-New_{(Speed)}}}[/tex]

[tex]\underline{\boxed{\sf Speed = \dfrac{Distance}{Time \:taken}}}[/tex]

Solution:Let the total duration covered by the flight be x.

Substitutingvaluesinformula,[tex]{\Rightarrow \sf 200 = \dfrac{600}{x}-\dfrac{600}{x+\dfrac{1}{2}}}\\[/tex]

[tex]{\Rightarrow \sf 200=\dfrac{600}{x}-\dfrac{600}{\dfrac{2x+1}{2}}}\\[/tex]

[tex]{\Rightarrow \sf 200 = \dfrac{600}{x}-\dfrac{600\times 2}{2x+1}}\\[/tex]

[tex]{\Rightarrow \sf 200=\dfrac{600}{x}-\dfrac{1200}{2x+1} }\\[/tex]

[tex]{\Rightarrow \sf 200 = \dfrac{(2x+1)(600)-(1200)(x)}{(x)(2x+1)} }\\[/tex]

[tex]{\Rightarrow \sf 200=\dfrac{(1200x+600)-(1200x)}{2x^2+x}}\\[/tex]

[tex]{\Rightarrow \sf 200 = \dfrac{{\cancel{1200x}}+600-{\cancel{1200x}}}{2x^2+x}}\\[/tex]

[tex]{\Rightarrow \sf 2x^2+x= \dfrac{6{\cancel{00}}}{2{\cancel{00}}}}\\[/tex]

## • Given:-

Distance of the flight = 600 km

Speed is reduced by = 200km/hr

Time of flight is increased by = 30 min. = 1/2 hr.

## • To Find:-

Total duration of flight

## • Solution:-

Let the duration of flight be ‘x’.

Therefore,

✯ Reduced speed of flight = Orignal speed – New Speed

We know,

[tex]\pink{\bigstar}[/tex] [tex]\large\underline{\boxed{\bf\green{Speed = \dfrac{Distance}{Time}}}}[/tex]

here,

✯ For Orignal Speed:-

Distance = 600

Time = x

✯ For New Speed:-

Distance = 600

Time = x + 1/2

Now,

➪ [tex]\sf 200 = \dfrac{600}{x} – \dfrac{600}{x + \frac{1}{2}}[/tex]

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

➪ [tex]\sf 200 = \dfrac{600}{x} – \dfrac{600}{\frac{2x+1}{2}}[/tex]

Therefore, the duration of the flight is 1 hr.
