A man and a woman 81 miles apart from each other, start travelling towards each other at the same time. If the man covers 5 miles per hour to the women's 4 miles per hour, how far will the woman have travelled when they meet?
  1. 27
  2. 36

  4. None of these
Correct Answer is 36. Choice (2) is right.
