  1. 1. The distance travelled by a train is 1830 km. The speed of the train is one more than twice the time taken to travel the distance. What will be the respective ratio of the speed of the train and time taken to travel.give me answer with explanantion.
    2. If the fractions 3/5, 5/8, 18/25, 4/5,4/16 are arranged in ascending order, which one will be the second. if any short-cut method for finding this question? pls explain.

    1. find the LCM of 5,8,25,4
      It will be 200
      Make all these no. with the denominator of 200
      120/200=3/5, 125/200=5/8, 144/200=18/25, 160/200=4/5, 50/200=1/4
      Now with the same denominator you can find easily which one is smallest or u can find their order also

    2. Say Speed of the train is S
      Its given that Speed of the train S is one more than twice or the time taken to travel, Which we assume T
      Distance D=1830
      2T+1 = 1830/T
      corss multiply the equation and solve it
      we will get T = 30
      and we know that S=2T+1
      Then Ratio of Speed and Time will be = 61/30
