Answer / teja

Answer:50 min
explanation:
speed=distance/time
in both cases distance is same.
s1*t1=s2*t2
s*t=(4s/5)*(t+10)
t=40 min
but we want total time means 10 min late
40+10=50 min

Answer / pradeep

We know speed × time = distance, so ((4/5)×s)×(t+10)=D
On solving above equation we get
4/5×st+4/5s×10=D
4st+40s=5st. [ Since D=S×T]
(4t+40)= 5t
40=5t-4t
t=40 minutes.

Answer / rani t c

let a person's usual speed be x km/min
let the distance be d km
given (d/(4 x/5))-(d/x)=10
when we solve this equation we will get d=40 x
t=?
t=d/(4 x/5)=(40 x/(4 x/5))=(5*40)/4=50
answer is 50 min
