# Problems on Trains - Quantitative Aptitude (MCQ) questions for Q. 21564

**Q. Two trains start at same time from two stations and proceed towards each other at the rate of 20 km/hr and 25 km/hr respectively. When they meet, it is found that one train has traveled 60 km more than the other. What is the distance between the two stations?***- Published on 06 May 16***a.** 620 km

**b.** 540 km

**c.** 460 km

**d.** 720 km

**ANSWER: 540 km**

Let us assume that trains meet after 'x' hours

Distance = speed * Time

Distance traveled by two trains = 20x km and 25x km resp.

As one train travels 60 km more than the other,

25x – 20x = 60

5x = 60

x = 12 hours

As the two trains are moving towards each other, relative speed = 20 + 25 = 45 km/hr

Therefore, total distance = 45*12 = 540 km.
