A passenger, whil

Answer :

Let us assume the speed of the palne be x km/hr

Increased speed of the plane = (x + 250) km/hr


It is given in the question that,


Total Distance = 1,500 km


We know that,



According to the question,




x2 + 250x – 750000 = 0


x2 + 1000x – 750x – 750000 = 0


(x + 1000) (x – 750) = 0


x + 1000 = 0


x = - 1000


Or x – 750 = 0


x = 750


As the speed of the plane can never be negative therefore speed of the plane will be 750 km/hr.


Value: By giving utmost importance to the health and well-being of the passenger the pilot displays the value of compassion. By making up for the time lost due to this delay he displays concern for the passengers’ time and money and shows dedication towards his airline and job.
