Answer:30 minutes.Step-by-step explanation;The train travels 85km per hour, so the train moves 85km in 60 minutes. You need to find out how many minutes it takes for the train to move 42 km. Use the rule of three to find this out, using x to represent the x amount of minutes it would take for it to travel 42km.

You can place the rule of three like this: x . Cross multiply to find out the value of x, which is 29.647, this is the amount of time it takes the train to travel 42 km. Round the number to its closest value, 30 minutes.
