In this case A=3 B=6 C=18 So relative speed of B wrt A is 6-3 = 3m/s Relative speed of A wrt to C is 18-3 =15m/s Therefore relative distances will be: B wrt A is 750/3 =250 C wrt to ...

OA

OA:

assume, interest = r
so after 3 years total money = 1000*(1+r)^3 = 1000*1.19
(1+r)^3 = 1.19
so after 6 years total money = 1000*(1+r)^6 = 1000*1.19^2 = 1000*1.42
so percentage of interest is 42%
