the maximum speed of a train is 90km/hr. it takes 10 hours to cover a distance of 400 km. find the ratio of its maximum speed to its average speed.

the average speed of the train will be the ratio of total distance covered to the total distance travelled.
so it will be: average speed: 400/10 = 40 kmph
maximum speed: 90 kmph
thus the ratio is: 90/40 = 9:4
