For Anne:
Minimum Distance possible = Minimum Speed x Time = 25*4 = 100 miles
Maximum Distance Possible = Max. Speed x Time = 45*4 = 180 miles

For John:
Minimum Distance possible = Minimum Speed x Time = 45*2 = 90 miles
Maximum Distance Possible = Max. Speed x Time = 60*2 = 120 miles

The range for distance traveled by John & Anne between A & B is from 100 to 120 miles
Only Answer (B) - 115 Miles is in between the range.

A is out since the minimum cannot be below 100.
C,D,E are out because the maximum for the second car is 120.

Thus, B.

Kudos for a correct solution.

Distance range per Anne's speed : 25*4 - 4*45 ---> 100 - 180 ...(1)

Distance range per John's speed : 45*2 - 60*2 ----> 90-120 ....(2)

(2) eliminates C,D,E and (1) eliminates A.

B is the correct answer.

Kudos for a correct solution.

Using the given options,
A.95. If distance=95 miles, and Anne takes 4 hours, then her speed=95/4=23.xx(Her speed is b/w 25 and 45 miles per hour) . So this is out
B 115. If distance=115 miles, and Anne takes 4 hours, then her speed=115/4=28.75 miles per hours(looks good) and John takes 2 hours.His speed=115/2=57.5 miles per hours(looks good)

Kudos for a correct solution.

IMO : B

Given
25 < $$S_a$$ < 45
45 < $$S_b$$ < 60
$$T_a$$ = 4
$$T_b$$ = 2
Distance is same for both

$$S_a$$$$T_a$$ = $$S_b$$$$T_b$$
$$S_a$$ * 4 = $$S_b$$ * 2
2* $$S_a$$ = $$S_b$$

Thus from the above equation the condition is restricted to as follows
25 < $$S_a$$ < 30
50 < $$S_b$$ < 60
As if $$S_a$$ > 30 then $$S_b$$ must be >60 which is not possible

Thus sub in Distance = $$S_b$$ * $$T_b$$
Distance = 2 * $$S_b$$
Thus Distance varies from
100 < Distance < 120

Thus from the options only 115 satisfies this condition

Time spent by John is half the time than the time spent by Anne, as the speed of Anne is beteween the 25-45 range, John could only make the distance at a speed range from 50 to 60, if we multiply this by 2, the range of distances are from 100 to 120, so the only answer compliant with that is B

The minimum possible distance = 4*25=100 that eliminates option A
The maximum possible Distance =2*60=120 which eliminates C , D and E
thus we are then left with : B

the same route in 2 hours, and his speed was between 45 miles per hour and 60 miles per hour. Which of the following could be the distance, in miles, from City A to City B?

A. 95
B. 115
C. 125
D. 160
E. 180

Distance range per Anne's speed : 25*4 - 4*45 ---> 100 - 180 ...(1)

Distance range per John's speed : 45*2 - 60*2 ----> 90-120 ....(2)

(2) eliminates C,D,E and (1) eliminates A.

B is the correct answer.

Let’s use the minimum and maximum speeds.

Minimum for Anne: 25 x 4 = 100 miles

Maximum for Anne: 45 x 4 = 180 miles

Thus:

100 < d < 180

Minimum for John: 45 x 2 = 90 miles

Maximum for John: 60 x 2 = 120 miles

Thus:

90 < d < 120

Using both inequalities, we have:

100 < d < 120

Answer: B
