Upper primary school mathematics question UPQ210

Train KTM left Woodlands Station at 08 00 and travelled to Kluang Station at an average speed of 60 km/h. At the same time, Train KTM81 left Kluang Station for Woodlands Station. At 11 30, KTM15 and KTM81 were 85 km apart after passing each other earlier. If KTM15 arrived at Kluang Station at 13 00, at what time would the KTM81 arrive at Woodlands Station?




                        Train KTM15 reached Kluang Station at 1300, KTM15 travelled 5 hours

                        Distance from Woodlands Station to Kluang Station = 60 × 5 = 300km

                        From 11 30 to 13 00, KTM15 travelled 1.5 hours

                        The distance travelled by KTM15 from 11 30 to 13 00 = 60 × 1.5 = 90 km

                        From 08 00 to 11 30, the KTM81 travelled 3.5 hours

                        The distance KTM81 travelled = 85 + 90 = 175km

                        The speed of KTM81 = 175 ÷ 3.5 = 50 km/h

                        The time required for KTM81 to travel 300km = 300 ÷ 50 = 6 hours

                        The time that Train KTM81 arrived at Woodlands Station is 08 00 + 06 00 = 14 00
