Two trains, each two miles long, enter two one mile long tunnels that are two miles apart from one another on the same track. The trains enter the tunnels at exactly the same time. The first train is going 5 miles/hour, and the second train is going 10 miles/hour. What is the sum of the lengths of the two trains that will protrude from the tunnels at the exact moment that they collide, assuming that neither train changes its speed prior to collision? The trains are on the same track headed in opposite directions (i.e. directly toward one another).

Two trains 140 m and 160 m long run at the speed of 60 km/hr and 40 km/hr respectively in opposite directions on parallel tracks. What is the time (in seconds) which they take to cross each other?

Two men start a bicycle race at triangular track ABC.

Starting from the point A simultaneously, one of them traverse the track in clockwise sense A-> B -> C & the other in anticlockwise sense A-> C-> B with their respective constant speed. After 4 min from the start, they first meet at B and then continue the race.

After what minimum time they meet first at B, will they again meet at B? Distance AB=500m, BC=400m, CA=300m
