Given: The distance between two stations is 240 km and a train takes 4 hours to cover the distance.

To find: To find the speed of the train.

Solution:

Speed is the distance covered by a moving object per unit of time.

The formula for calculating speed:


$\boxed{Speed=\frac{distance}{time}}$

Here, the distance traveled by train $=240\ km$

Time taken to cover the distance $=4\ hours$

Therefore, the speed of the train $=\frac{240\ km}{4\ hr}$

$=60\ km/h$

Hence, the speed of the train is $60\ km/h$.
