We will practice different types of questions given in the worksheet on calculating distance and time.
We know, the formula to calculate distance is speed × time and the formula to calculate time is distance/speed.
1. A car travelling at a speed of 60 km/hr reaches its destination in ¼ hour. How much distance did it travel?
2. A boy runs at a speed of 8 metres per second. How long does he take to cover a distance of 1 km?

5. An aeroplane takes 3 hours to travel a distance of 3300
km. Another aeroplane travels at a speed which is 100 km per hour less than
first aeroplane. How long will it take to travel the same distance by the
6. Find the distance between two stations if a train travelling non-stop at 75 km/hour covers the distance between the stations in 20 minutes.
7. Two sprinters run the same race of 100 metres. One runs at a speed of 10 meters per second and the other runs at 8 meters per second. By what time will the first sprinter beat the other sprinter?
