Expert Answer:

let space the space speed space be space straight x
distance space equals space 36 km
time space equals space 36 over straight x
on space increasing space speed space to space straight x space plus 10
straight t equals fraction numerator 36 over denominator straight x plus 10 end fraction
difference equals 18 over 30 space hrs
36 over straight x minus fraction numerator 36 over denominator straight x plus 10 end fraction equals 18 over 30 space
simplfying space we space get
straight x squared plus 10 straight x minus 1200 equals 0
straight x equals 30 space or space straight x equals negative 40
so space straight x space equals 30
speed space of space car space equals space 30 km divided by hr
