7)A person was fined for exceeding the speed limit by 10mph. Another person
was also fined for exceeding the same speed limit by twice the same. If the
second person was traveling at a speed of 35 mph, find the speed limit.
Sol: Let ‘x’ be the speed limit
Person ‘A’ was fined for exceeding the speed limit by = 10mph
Person ‘B’ was fined for exceeding the speed limit by = twice of ‘A’ = 2*10mph=20mph
given that the second person was traveling at the speed of 35mph
=> 35mph – 20mph = 15mph

SolA+B) can do the work in = 1/24 min.
A alone can do the same work in = 1/40 min.
B alone can do the same work in = (A+B)’s – A’s = 1/24 – 1/40 = 1/60
Therefore, b can do the same work in = 60 min
