To calculate the arrival time in london of a train that leaves Leicester to london at 11:50 A.M, use use the formula below.

Formula:

  • Ta = [(d/s)+11:50]....... Equation 1

Where:

  • Ta = Arrival time
  • d = distance from Leicester to London
  • s = Speed

From the question,

Given:

  • d = 100 miles
  • s = 80 mph

Substitute these values into equation 1

  • Ta = [(100/80)+11:50]
  • Ta = 1.25h+11:50
  • Ta = 1 hours 15 minutes +11:50
  • Ta = 13:05 pm

Hence, the arrival time in london of a train that leaves Leicester to london at 11:50 A.M is 13:05 pm.
