@firsty but shouldn't it be bt=at1-at? because it is given that the distance covered by B by the time he meets A for the 1st time= distance covered by A between the 1st and 2nd meetings
t1=time betn 1st and 2nd meeting;
t= time of first meeting

can anyone please explain question 8(section 1) of this aimcat...had missed out on this aimcat ...
this aimcat is quite an old story i know
the soln in time is complex but that s the way to do it, \
however simpler terms- dist covered in 1st meeting=3/4c(c=track length)

2nd meet=c;

eqn with a,b as individual speeds;
at+bt=3/4c; 1st round;
at1+bt1=c;2nd round;

also given bt=at1;
t1=(b/a)(t)
solving the eqns=>a=3/4b;

so 3/4 c=bt+3/4 bt;
t=3/7 c/b;
at=9/28;

looks long but is not very time taking....

DOUBT: In Q4 of Section II, can anyone explain the solution ? TIME's explanation is too small to be of any significance ....
May be the destination is not for me, but the journey is..http://www.pagalguy.com/forums/chit-chat/shoutbox-t-83788/p-3594016/r-4343099

Its more important to have extraordinary dreams than trying to become an extraordinary person.
