Let the speed of one automobile (A)= x km/h

speed of other automobile (B) = 8x/9 km/h

total time = 7 hours

total distance travelled = 595 km

distance travelled by A = 7x km (velocity×time)

distance travelled by B = 7×(8x/9) km = 56x/9

Total distance =

⇒x = (speed of A)

(speed of B)

speed of other automobile (B) = 8x/9 km/h

total time = 7 hours

total distance travelled = 595 km

distance travelled by A = 7x km (velocity×time)

distance travelled by B = 7×(8x/9) km = 56x/9

Total distance =
