Given:

Distances travelled by Hamid and Akhtar in an hour are $9\ km$ and $12\ km$ respectively.

To do:

We have to find the ratio of the speed of Hamid to the speed of Akhtar.

Solution:

The distance travelled by Hamid in one hour $=9\ km$

The distance travelled by Akthar in one hour $= 12\ km$

We know that,

Speed is defined as the distance travelled by an object in an hour.

Therefore,

The speed of Hamid$=9\ km\ per\ hr$

The speed of Akthar $=12\ km\ per\ hr$

The ratio of the speed of Hamid to the speed of Akthar $ =9 : 12$

$ =3 : 4$

The ratio of the speed of Hamid to the speed of Akthar is $3 :4$.
