Aditya rides a bicycle from town P to town Q with a constant speed. If he increases his speed by 3 m/s, he will arrive to town Q three times faster. How many times faster will Aditya arrive to town Q, if he increases his speed by 6 m/s

s=$\frac{d}{t}$

Let his constant speed be x
x= d/t
Therefore x+3 = (d/t) +3
