Q 35.

Dinesh went from place A to place B and from there to place C. A is 7.5 km from B and B is 12.7 km from C. Ayub went from place A to place D and from there to place C. D is 9.3 km from A and C is 11.8 km from D. Who travelled more and by how much?

SOLUTION:

Distance travelled by Dinesh = AB + BC = (7.5 + 12.7) km = 20.2 km.
Distance travelled by Ayub = AD + DC = (9.3 + 11.8) km = 21.1 km.
Difference = (21.1 – 20.2) km = 0.9 km
Hence, Ayub travelled 0.9 km more than Dinesh.
