A train covered a certain distance at a uniform speed. If the train would have been 10 km/h faster, it would have taken 2 hours less than the scheduled time. And, if the train were slower by 10 km/h, it would have taken 3 hours more than the scheduled time.

Find the distance covered by the train.

Step 1

Let the speed of the train be x km per hour and time taken be y hours.

Then

Step 2

Given that If the train would have been 10 km/h faster, it would have taken 2 hours less than the scheduled time.

That is,

Step 3

Also given that if the train were slower by 10 km/h, it would h...
