the ratio of the speed of two vehicles is 2:3. if 1st vhicle covers 50km in 3 hrs, what dist. is covered in 2 hrs by the 2 nd vehicle

Ratio of speed of 2 vehicles = 2 : 3

Let the speed of first vehicle be 2*x* km/hr

Let the speed of second vehicle be 3*x* km/hr

Distance covered by first vehicle in 3 hrs = 50 km.

Speed of first vehicle

So, speed of second vehicle

=25 km/hr

Let the distance covered by second vehicle in 2 hrs = *y* km

∴ Speed of second vehicle

Thus, the distance covered by second vehicle in 2 hrs is 50 km.
