A is travelling at 72 k/h [Given]

=> A is travelling at 72*5/18 m/s = 20 m/s

B is travelling at 25 m/s [Given]

Therefore, the difference in their speed is 5 m/s

(1 km/hr = 5/18 mper sec)
so that, 72 km/hr=20mtr/sec
A's speed will be 20m/sec and B's speed will be 25 m/sec

hence the diff.of speed between them will be of 5 m/sec

Convert the speed of A in meter per second.
As 1km=1000meters and 1hour = 3600 second
    => 72km/hour =72x1000
Now we can substract the speeds of A and B
 Difference in speed= Speed of B- Speed of A
                               = 25-20
                               =5meter per second
Hence speed of B is more than A by 5m/s

If the speed of B is converted in Km/hour it would be 80 km/hour... so the difference would be 80-72=8 km/hour or 8 km/hour

When we convert 25 m/sec into km/ hour we get 90 km/hour so the difference in their speeds would be
90-72=18 km/hour.. or 5 m/sec (18 km/hour converted in m/sec )
