Re: speed distance [#permalink]  08 Dec 2009, 10:22
well this is what I could get on solving

Initially, time travelled by A was 6hrs and by B was 12hrs (6 + 6hrs)

now with speed of A as 6 he travelled 36kms and B with speed of 4 travelled a distance of 48kms. So at meeting point A had travelled 12km less than B. Now B will take 36/4 = 9 hrs to reach point 1 and A will take 48/6 = 8hrs to reach point 2

so A is faster tourist having speed as 6km/hr
