A tortoise moves a distance of 1000 metres in 15 mintues. What is the average speed of tortoise in km/h?

Answer :


Total distance=1000 m 

Total time taken=15 minutes= 15/60=0.25 hour

formula used:

We know

 1 km=1000 m

Total distance traveled=1 km

1 hour=60 minutes
15 minutes=0.25 hours

Total time taken=0.25 hours

putting the values of distance and time in the equation:


hence, the speed of tortoise is 4 km/h
