E. $$\frac{12xz}{y}$$

Here,

in y secs the rocket travel = $$\frac{x}{5}$$

So in 1 sec the rocket travel = $$\frac{x}{{5 * y}}$$

Therefore in 60z secs the rocket travel = $$\frac{x}{{5 * y}} * 60z = \frac{{12xz}}{y}$$

** z minute = 60z secs

In y sec rocket travel x/5 miles

in 1 sec rocket travel (x/5) /y miles

In 60z sec rocket travel (x/5) * 60z /y

= 12xz /y. Re: If a rocket can travel   [#permalink] 20 Jul 2018, 09:51
