A new train goes 20% farther than an older train in the same amount of time. During the time it takes the older train to go 300 miles, how many miles can the newer train complete?
The newer train can go 350 miles.
300 * 1.20 = 360 miles
Distance covered by New train = distance covered by old train+20% of distance covered by old train
Or, Distance covered by New train =300 miles+20% of 300miles.
= 300 miles +( 20/100)×300
= 300 miles +20×3 miles
= 300 miles+60miles
= 360 miles. Ans.
