# A man walks a ce

Let the original speed be x km/hr and time taken be y hrs.
Then, distance covered = xy km.
Speed = km/hr,
Time taken = (y - 1)hrs.
Distance = km.
Therefore xy = xy = xy – x +
( y/2) – (1/2)
- x + (y/2) –
(1/2) = 0
y - 2x - 1 = 0
y - 2x = 1 … (i)
New speed = (x - 1) km/hr

Time taken = (y + 3) hrs.
Therefore distance = (x - 1) (y + 3) km.
Therefore xy = (x - 1)(y + 3)
3x – y = 3 … (ii)
Adding (i) and (ii), we get x = 4
Substituting x = 4 in (i),

We get y =9
Therefore speed = 4 km/hr,

time taken = 9 hrs
Hence, distance= 4 × 9 km = 36 km.
