**Question: **

Points A, P, Q and B lie on the same line such that P, Q and B are, respectively, 100 km, 200 km and 300 km away from A. Cars 1 and 2 leave A at the same time and move towards B. Simultaneously, car 3 leaves B and moves towards A. Car 3 meets car 1 at Q, and car 2 at P. If each car is moving in uniform speed then the ratio of the speed of car 2 to that of car 1 is

1 : 2 | |

2 : 9 | |

1 : 4 | |

2 : 7 |

**Show Answer**

Car 3 meets car 1 at Q, which is 200 km from A.

Therefore, at the time of their meeting car 1 must have travelled 200 km and car 3 must have travelled 100 km.

As the time is same, ratio of speed of car 1 to speed of car 3 = 2 : 1.

Car 3 meets car 2 at P, which is 100 km from A.

Therefore, at the time of their meeting car 2 must have travelled 100 km and car 3 must have travelled 200 km.

As the time is same, ratio of speed of car 2 to speed of car 3 = 1 : 2.

Speed of car 1 : speed of car 3 = 2 : 1

And speed of car 2 : speed of car 3 = 1 : 2

So, speed of car 1 : speed of car 2 : speed of car 3 = 4 : 1 : 2
