After a few time he sees a milestone with 2 digits written on it.after he drives for an hour, he sees a different milestone with the identical digits, but in reversed order. After a different hour ofjourney, he sees a different milestone with original digits but with a zero ranging from them.Find the speed of the car?

A let the distance showed on 1st milestone be 10x+y     distance showed on 2nd milestone be 10y+x    now hit and trial let x=1 y=6  so 16 ,61,106   distance is 45km/hr. this is the only condition satisfies   4.A five digit no whose 3rd digit is 1 greater than the sum of the 1st 2 digits and the 3rd digit is double the 4th digit and 4th digit is double the 5th digit and 2nd digit is greater than 1st digit by 5. and if we multiply 4th and 5th digith we get 3rd digit. A    Let the digits be denoted by p1p2p3p4p5     p3=p1+p2+1     p3=2p4     p4=2p5     p2=p1+5  hit and trial 16842   5.
