Assume that the length of the escalator is \( 1 \) ,the speed at which the person walks is \( \frac{1} {90} \) and the speed of the escalator is \( \frac{1} {60} \).So,the speed at which he moves up the moving escalator is \( \frac{1} {90} +\frac{1} {60} =\frac{5} {180}=\frac{1} {36} \).So,it takes 36 seconds for him to walk up the moving escalator.Log in to reply
