Let x be the revolutions made by the rear wheel

therefore 30(x+5) = 36x ==> 30x+150 - 36x

== > x = 25

therefore 36x = 36*25 = 900

Its D,

Let X be no. of the revolutions made by rear wheel, then X+ 5 are the no. of revolutions made by front wheel.

So X x36 = (X+ 5)30
on solving we get X =25
Hence Distance travelled by cart = 36 x 25 = 900 ft

Ahhhhh, I see my mistake. I was multiplying 25 revolutions by 30 (vs. 36). Duh. Yet again, another silly mistake.

And yes, OA: D.
