A train travels a distance of 480km at a uniform speed. If the speed had been 8km/h less, then it would have taken 3 hours more to cover the same distance. Find the speed of the train.

Represent this situation in the form of quadratic equation.

So I have been trying this but couldn't find it.

I have taken the speed as x.

And time, t

Distance =speed *time

Then

480=xt

480=(x-8)(t+3)

I couldn't go any further. And I'm not sure if this is right or not.

I just started learning quadratic equations. And I don't have any depth in the subject. Help me solve it in an easy way. Thank you!
