Draw the figure for above problem

let the ground is DE and where the ground nut is placed is C.

NOW DC= X,CE=250-X.

NOW AD=200 BE=150

ACCORDING TO QUESTION AC=BC

AC=SQRT(200*200+X*X)

BC=SQRT(150*150+(250-X)*(250-X)

EQUALATE THEM AND FIND OUT X

(250-x)^2+200^2=x^2+150^2

500x=80000

x=160m

Answer is 160 m

Since there speed is same and time to reach the grain is also same.

Therefore there distance is different.

As s1=d1/t and s2=d2/t

since s1=s2,

therefore d1=d2

d1^2=x^2 + 200, d2^2=(250-x)^2 + 150^2

solving the eq you will get the ans. (250-x)^2+150^2=x^2+200^2

ans is 90ft

actually iam an silent member of this group ok me too going to atted the infy test on 6thaug. the answer is by phythogorous therom: let x be the dist bt tower a and grain 200^2+x^2= (250-x)^2+150^2solve this for answer.ans is 11 if is wrong pls send the corret solution.

suppose the diatance from tower A is x

so from tower B its dis is 250-x

so dis travelled by two birds will be=

(200)*(200)+(x*x)=(150)*(150)+(250-x)*(250-x)

=90ft

200*200 + x*x = (250-x)*(250-x) +(150*150)

40000 + x*x = 250*250 +x*x - 2*250*x + 150*150

x*x is canceled

40000= 62500 - 500x + 22500

40000 = 85000 - 500x

500x = 85000 - 40000

500x= 45000

x= 90

Since both birds has same speed and they reach the grain at same time. This mean both cover same distance. Let x be the distance of grain from tower A. then 250-x from B. then (200)sqre+xsqre=(250-x)sqre+150sqre

After solving we get x=90 meter. i.e. 90 meter from tower A
