There is a straight highway. Four different villages lie on that highway. The distance between them is different. The third village is 60km away from the first village; the fourth is 40 km away from the second; the third is 10 km near to the fourth that it is to the second.Can you calculate the distance between the fourth and the first village?
Solution: 75First Village = ASecond Village = BThird Village = CFourth Village = DDistance between B and D = 40km=> Distance between B and C + Distance between C and D = 40km=> Distance between B and C + (Distance between B and C - 10) = 40 km=> 2 * Distance between B and C = 50km=> Distance between B and C = 25kmTherefore the distance between C and D = 15kmThus, distance between A and D = 60 + 15 = 75km.
