dear student,
let the speed of the express train be x kn/h
we know that speed= dist/time
time taken by the expres train=240/x hrs
the speed of the other train= x-12 km/h
so time taken by the other train to cover the same distance=240/(x-12) hr
time taken by the other train = time taken by exp train +1
solving we get,
