Let the speed of train B be x, then speed of A will be x-12. Time taken by A = 230/(x-12) Time taken by B = 290/x Given that the time taken by train A = Train B Then, 230/(x-12)=290/x 23x=29x-349 6x=349 x=58 Therefore, the speed of the train A is (x-12, 58-12=46) 46 and Train b is 58 Have a wonderful day :D
