Answer:Distance cover by both the Car’s is equalStep-by-step explanation:Given as :

For car AThe initial speed = 25 mile per hour

The time taken = 3 hours

So, Discover cover = Speed × Time

I.e D = 25 mile per hour × 3 hour

So,

D = 75 milesAgain

The speed = 35 mile per hour

The time taken = 4 hours

So, Discover cover = Speed × Time

I.e d = 35 mile per hour × 4 hour

So,

d = 140 miles∴ Total distance cover by car A = D + d

or,

Total distance cover by car A = 75 miles + 140 miles = 215 milesFor car BThe speed = 43 mile per hour

The time taken = 5 hours

So, Discover cover = Speed × Time

I.e x = 43 mile per hour × 5 hour

So,

x = 215 milesOr

, Total distance cover by car B = 215 milesHence from the calculation it is clear that distance cover by both the Car’s is equal . Answer
