**At 9.30 am, Train A which was 200 m long, pulled out of Nanas Station and travelled towards Dadas Station at a uniform speed of 80 km/h. Half an hour later, Train B which was 150 m long, left Dadas Station and travelled towards Nanas Station at a uniform speed of 90 km/h.**

**a) How far has Train A travelled when Train B left Dadas Station?**

**b) The two trains met each other in a tunnel. Both trains took 15 minutes to completely travel through the tunnel. Calculate the length of the tunnel.**

**Solution**

**a)**

Distance = speed x time

= 80 km/h x (1/2) hour

= 40 km**Answer: 40 km**

**b)**

(Train A) distance

= 80 km x (1/4) hr

= 20 km

(Train B) distance

= 90 km x (1/4) hr

= 22.5 km

Length of Tunnel

--> 20km + 22.5km - 0.2km (Train A's length) - 0.15km (Train B's length)

= 42.15 km

**Answer: 42.15 km**
