it takes three seconds for the length of the train to enter the tunnel

3 seconds is   3/3600 hr

3/3600 hr   * 100 km/hr =  1/12 km long train

A train traveling at 100 km an hour takes 3 seconds to enter a tunnel (T) and an additional thirty seconds to pass completely through it. Find the length (x), in kilometers, of the train. Express your answer as a common fraction.

Hello Guest!

$$t=\dfrac{s}{v}$$

$$3sek=\dfrac{T\cdot h}{100km}\cdot\dfrac{3600sek}{h}\\ T=\dfrac{3sek\cdot 100km}{3600sek}$$

$$T=0.08\overline{3}km$$

$$30sek=\dfrac{x\cdot h}{100km}\\ x=\dfrac{30sek\cdot 100km}{h}\cdot \dfrac{h}{3600sek}\\$$

$$x=0.8\overline{33}km$$

The length of the train is $$\frac{5}{6}\ km=0.8\overline{33}\ km.$$ !
