Td - Time by Deccan queen, and T be time by other train.
T - Td = 45 min = 3/4 hr
Vd - V = 20 km/hr
VdT - VT = 20T
VdT - 192 = 20T
(Vd - 20)T - 192 = 0
Now if we put for T = 3/4 + Td.
We'll still have two variables Vd and Td. So we can pick a value of Td and we get a value for Vd.
So many answers are possible.
For example, Td = 1/4, so that T = 1 hr.
Then Vd = 202 km/hr. and V = 192 km/hr
