Q8. A train travels 360 km at a uniform speed. If the speed had been 5 km/h more, it would have taken 1 hour less for the same journey. Find the speed of the train.
Let the speed of the train be
Then, time taken to cover will be:
According to the question,
Making it a quadratic equation.
Now, solving by the factorizing method:
However, the speed cannot be negative hence,
The speed of the train is .
