Here we learn the problem on** Problem on running same direction time taken by train a man or light lamp. **First is Train and second object is that which is crossed by the train.

Train running same direction shortcut tricks are very important thing to know for your exams. Competitive exams are all about time. If you know time management then everything will be easier for you. Most of us miss this thing. We provide examples on Train running same direction shortcut tricks here in this page below. All tricks on train running same direction are provided here. Visitors please read carefully all shortcut examples. These examples here will help you to better understand shortcut tricks on train running same direction.

Before starting anything just do a math practice set. Choose any twenty math problems and write it down on a page. Do first ten maths using basic formula of this math topic. You also need to keep track of Timing. After solving all ten math questions write down total time taken by you to solve those questions. Now practice our shortcut tricks on train running same direction and read examples carefully. After doing this go back to the remaining ten questions and solve those using shortcut methods. Again keep track of Timing. This time you will surely see improvement in your timing. But this is not all you want. If you need to improve your timing more then you need to practice more.

We all know that the most important thing in competitive exams is Mathematics. That doesn’t mean that other topics are less important. You can get a good score only if you get a good score in math section. A good score comes with practice and practice. You should do your math problems within time with correctness, and you can do this only by using shortcut tricks. But it doesn’t mean that without using shortcut tricks you can’t do any math problems. You may have that potential that you may do maths within time without using any shortcut tricks. But so many people can’t do this. Here we prepared train running same direction shortcut tricks for those people. Here in this page we try to put all types of shortcut tricks on Train running same direction. But we may miss few of them. If you know anything else rather than this please do share with us. Your little help will help others.

**Note: If direction is given in the same direction then we subtract both speeds.**

Example #1

A train of 250 meter long is running at a speed of 65 km/hr. A man running at a speed of 5 km/hr, towards the same direction the train is moving. Find the time taken by the train to pass the man.

- 12 Seconds
- 15 Seconds
- 19 Seconds
- 23 Seconds

**Answer:**Option (B)

**How to Solve**

If direction is given in the same direction then we subtract it.

( 65 – 5 )

= 60 km/hr.

Now, converting it into m/sec.

60 x 5 / 18

= 50 / 3 m/sec.

The train covers total 250 meter.

So, to cover the distance the train needs,

250 x 3 / 50

= 15 sec.

Example #2

Two super fast train, 180 meters and 180 meters in length, are running in the same direction. The first train at the speed of 58 km/hr and the second one at the speed of 50 km/hr. What time will they be cross each other?

- 140 Seconds
- 148 Seconds
- 156 Seconds
- 162 Seconds

**Answer:**Option (D)

**How to Solve**

Two fast trains are running is same direction and their relative speed is,

58 – 50

= 8 km/hr.

Now, converting km/hr to m/sec.

8 x 5 / 18

= 20 / 9 m/sec.

So, the total length of both the train is,

( 180 + 180 )

= 360 meters.

So, the required time is,

Total length / Relative speed

= ( 180 + 180 ) x 9 / 20

= 360 x 9 / 20

= 162 sec.
