Solution

Let the speed increased by \(x\) km/hr.
So increased speed \(=(x+48)\)km/hr
Solution for A car can finish a certain journey in 10 hours at the speed of 48 km/hr. By how much should its speed be increased so that it may take only 8 hours to cover the same distance ? (in km/hr)
Since speed and time taken are in inverse variation, we get:
\(\Rightarrow\) \(10\times 48=8(x+48)\)
\(\Rightarrow\) \(480=8x+384\)
\(\Rightarrow\) \(8x=480-384\)
\(\Rightarrow\) \(8x=96\)
\(\Rightarrow\) \(x=12\)
\(\therefore\) The speed should be increased by \(12\,km/hr\)
