## Explanation

“A train 240 meter long passes a pole in 24 seconds”, this statement shows two quantities are given i.e.

• Length
• Time

Both these quantities are sufficient to find out the speed.

And, the total length becomes 240 + 650 = 890 meter. So;

Time = Distance/Speed

Time = ?

## Solution

Length of train  = 240 m

Time required to pass a pole = 24 sec

Speed in m/sec = 240/24 = 10 m/sec

Total length = 240 + 650 = 890 meter

Now,

Time = distance/speed

Time = 890/10

### Conclusion

A train 240 meter long passes a pole in 24 seconds. It will take 89 seconds to pass a platform 650 meter long.
