Patrick takes 2 hours to drive in his car from point A to point B. What is the distance between A and B?

(1) If his average speed for the journey had been 20 kilometers per hour greater, he would have taken only 1 hour and 36 minutes to reach point B
The speed when the car covers the distance in 2 hr is \(\frac{d}{2}\), and the speed when the time taken is 1hr 36 minutes or 1+\frac{36}{60}=1.6 hr is \(\frac{d}{1.6}\). Now, \(\frac{d}{1.6}-\frac{d}{2}=20.........2d-1.6d=20*2*1.6.......0.4d=64......d=160km\)

(2) Patrick covered an average of 800 meters every 36 seconds.
If he travels 800 meters in 36 seconds, he will travel \(\frac{800}{1000}*\frac{60*60}{36}*2 =0.8*100*2=160km\)
Sufficient
