Mr.X arrived at his home at 12:00.
If he had traveled 15 km/h faster, he would arrive 1 hour earlier.
If he had traveled 10 km/h slower, he would arrive 1 hour later.
What is his rate, when did he departed and how long (in km) did he traveled?

Please excuse me because of my silliness.
I had misread the problem at another source, it seemed hard to me, as it had endless answers.
The true problem was that:
Erase "faster" and "slower" words. Add "at 15 km/h" and "at 10 km/s".
It became an easy one now, anyway.
Excuse me for annoyance. :blush:
