We have compiled time and distance concepts and formulas for you in this section. We have also given how we derive each of these formulas. They should surely help you crack any aptitude test on time and distance. To enhance your knowledge and skills to solve Time and Distance aptitude test problems, go through the tutorial on Time and Distance.
Most of the aptitude questions on time and distance can be solved if you know the basic correlation between speed, time and distance which you have learnt in your high school class. Speed is distance covered by a moving object in unit time. Let the distance travelled by them are `D_a` and `D_b` respectively and time taken to cover these distances be `T_a` and `T_b` respectively. We know that when distance travelled is constant, speed of the object is inversely proportional to time taken. While answering multiple choice time and dinstance problems in quantitative aptitude test, double check the units of values given. Average speed is always equal to total distance travelled to total time taken to travel that distance. Two persons A and B start at the same time from two points P and Q at the same time towards each other.
They meet at a point R and A takes `t_a` time to reach Q and B takes `t_b` time to reach B. If speed of A and B are `S_a` and `S_b` respectively. Time taken by A to cover PR is same as time taken by B to cover QR. We know that when time is constant, speed is directly proportional to distance covered. Both equations are valid even if A and B start at 2 different times from P and Q towards each other where A takes `t_a` time to reach R and B takes `t_b` time to reach R. Two persons A and B start at the same time from two points P and Q at the same time towards each other with speeds `S_1` and `S_2` respectively. They reach their respective destinations and reverse their directions.
They continue this to and fro motion. After meeting, they continue to Q and P respectively. When they reach their destinations, they have together covered 2D distance. By the time they meet for second time, they will have covered 3D distance. Total distance covered by A and B for their 3rd meeting is 5D. Got a tip or Question?

This page will help you find your way around Google Guide. Early in 2007, Google Guide became a blog. Tutorials are divided into Categories. If you’re an experienced user, start with one of the following links.
These pages may appear to describe basic concepts, but if you read carefully, you’ll discover helpful insights into how Google works and how to use it more effectively. Google Guide is neither affiliated with nor endorsed by Google. Pages in this section highlight some of Nancy’s favorite Google features. You can find more information about these features in other sections of Google Guide. The more you know about how Google works, its features, its capabilities, and how it displays results, the better it can serve your needs. A query is the request you send to Google. This part of Google Guide explains how to write a query that will help you find just what you want.
Google strives to make it easy to find whatever you’re seeking, whether it’s a web page, a news article, a definition, or something to buy. After you enter a query, Google returns a results list ordered by what it considers the items’ relevance to your query, listing the best match first. Sponsored links may appear above and to the right of the search results. This part of Google Guide describes what appears on a results page and how to evaluate what you find so you’ll be better able to determine if a page includes the information you’re seeking or links to it. Google started by providing generalized web search. Google now provides tools and shortcuts for finding commonly sought utilities and information, which you may have previously found offline or on specialized sites, e. This part describes some of Google’s specialized search tools. Google now offers specialized searches that are accessible by clicking on the links above Google’s search box. Each link, except the last, i. This part describes some of Google’s specialized search services, including Image Search, Groups, News Search, and Froogle.
