Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok :) let us assume that one leap of hare=1m so we are given that 7 leaps of hound=9 leaps of hare so 1leap of hound=9/7 leaps of hare so 1leap of hound=9/7m nd then lets assume that the hare makes one leap in 1 sec time taken by hare to take 6 leaps =6secs and 6sec=time taken by hound to make 7 leaps so the hound makes 7/6leaps per sec 1 leap of hound=9/7m so in 1 sec hound travels 7/6 x 9/7 m=3/2m speed of hare is 1m/sec and speed of hound is 1.5m/sec and hare is 24 of her own leaps ahead =24m so let the time taken by hound to capture the hare be t so distance travelled by hound=distance traveled by hare+24m 1.5(t) = 1(t)+24 0.5(t)=24 t=24/0.5 t=48secs hound makes 7/6 leaps per sec so leaps made in 48 secs=7/6 x 48 =56
