Instead of 10 km/hr if a person walks at 14 km/hr, he could have traveled 20km more. The actual distance traveled by him is 50km.

It is given that:

A person walks about 14 km/h instead of 10 km/h

He can walk 20 km more.

We can use the formula

Speed = Distance/Time

Let us calculate

Let x be the time in hours

From the question

14x - 10x = 20

By subtraction

4x = 20

Dividing both sides by 4

x = 5 hours

Actual speed = 10 km/h

Actual distance = 10 × 5 = 50 km.

Hence, 50 km is the actual distance.

Summary:

If a person walks at 14 km/hr instead of 10 km/hr, he would have walked 20km more. The actual distance travelled by him is - (a) 50 km (b) 70 km (c) 56 km (d) 80 km

A person would have travelled 20 km further if he had walked at a speed of 14 km/h rather than 10 km/h. He has actually travelled 50 kilometres.
