Nowadays competitive exams became very tough for candidates who are preparing competitive exams like SSC CGL, SSC CHSL, SSC MTS, Group D, Police Jobs, Banking, etc, though all most of the candidates have aptitude-solving skills but they don't know how to solve it in less time or you can say they don't know time management, here you will how to solve the time and Distance aptitude questions with less time by using some simple tricks.

Shortcut Tricks and Formulas on Time Speed & Distance


If a man travels different distances $d_1,d_2,d_3$,... and so on in different time $t_1,t_2,t_3$ respectively then,

Average speed = $\text"total travelled distance"/\text"total time taken in travelling distance"$

= ${d_1 + d_2 + d_3 +...}/{t_1 + t_2 + t_3 +...}$


If a bus travels from A to B with the speed x km/h and returns from B to A with the speed y km/h,then the average speed will be $({2xy}/{x + y})$


If a man travels different distances $d_1,d_2,d_3$, and so on with different speeds $s_1,s_2,s_3$, respectively then,

Average speed = $({d_1 + d_2 + d_3 + ...})/{d_1/S_1 + d_2/S_2 + d_3/S_3 + ...}$


If a man travels at the speed of $s_1$, he reaches his destination $t_1$ late while he reaches $t_2$ before when he travels at $s_2$ speed, then the distance between the two places is

D = ${(S_1 × S_2)(t_1 + t_2)}/{S_2 - S_1}$
