Super Cyclist

Bicycles

Cycling is a good exercise. When I got my first job, I decided to cycle to the office every day.

An odometer was attached to my bicycle, so I knew at what speed I was cycling.

I had to report at the office at 12.30 pm every day. On the very first day, I rode at 10 kmph and reached office at 1 pm. My boss scolded me and told me that if I was late again, I will have to start looking for another job.

Next day, I started from home at the same time but rode at 15 kmph. I reached reached the office at 11 am. This was too early!

Can you tell me at what speed I should cycle so that I reach office at 12 noon? That, I think, should be the perfect time to reach office.
