uphill distance = 20*t
downhill distance = 25 * (t-3/4)
since both distances are same
20*t = 25t-75/4
t= 75/20 hrs
so d = 20*75/20 ; 75 km

Letting t = the time for the uphill part of the trip, we can create the equation:

20t = 25(t - 3/4)

20t = 25t - 75/4

75/4 = 5t

75/20 = t

15/4 = t

So the uphill distance was:

20 x 15/4 = 5 x 15 = 75 kilometers

Both the uphill and downhill distances were 75 kilometers.

Answer: E
