Speed decrease by 20%, then time should be increased by \(\frac{20}{(10020)}*100\) = 25% C is the answer.

A) 10% B) 20% C) 25% D) 30% E) 35% Instead of solving, we can make use of numbers to arrive at the answer. Initial speed=20mph Let us assume t=4 hours Then distance travelled=80miles New speed=16mph time taken to travel 80 miles=5 hours i.e. t has increased from 4 to 5, which is 25% Ans:C

Algebraic solution >
S1 = 20mph for t1 hours  Therefore, the distance traveled (d) = 20*t1
Now we have been told that the new speed (S2) is 20% less than S1 > S2 = S1*0.8 = 20*0.8 = 20*(4/5) = 16mph
if distance needs to remain the same, we can then write the new equation only in terms of S1, t1, S2, and t2.
S1*t1 = S2*t2 20*t1 = 16*t2 (20/16)*t1 = t2 (5/4)*t1 = t2 1.25t1 = t2 Therefore, t2 is 25% more than t1.

A) 10% B) 20% C) 25% D) 30% E) 35% The speed decreased by 20% = 4/5 of the regular speed. Rate and time have a RECIPROCAL relationship. If Jane travels at 4/5 of her regular speed, she will take 5/4 of her regular time  an increase of 1/4 = 25%.

Plug in numbers for the same. Speed = 20 assuming distance = 100 , thus time taken is 5. Now new speed is 16, while distance is yet 100 New time is 6.25 which is 5 + 0.25(5) = 25%
