### Question 1

A boy walks along the three edges of an equilateral triangle at average speeds of 7 km/h, 4 km/h and 5 km/h. What is the average speed along the whole journey?

**A**

$5{5/83}$ kmph.

**B**

$6{11/82}$ kmph.

**C**

$3{82/85}$ kmph.

**D**

$7{74/85}$ kmph.

**Soln.**

**Ans: a**

Let the edge of the triangle be L. Total distance travelled = 3L. Time taken = $L/7 + L/4 + L/5$. So overall average speed = ${3L}/{L/7 + L/4 + L/5}$ which simplifies to ${420/83}$, which is same as: $5{5/83}$ km/h.
