A bus leaves a station at 1 p.m, travling at an average rate of 44 mi/h. One hour later a second bus leaves the same station, travling east at a rate of 48 mi/h. At what time will the two buses be 274mi. apart?

Set up two equations as I did in the two previous problems. Let us know what you think and someone will be glad to help you through it.The secret to doing these word problems is to get the two equations. You need practice doing that. One think I saw the other day was a tutor said, "Write out the equation is English, then convert it to a math equatin." That works very well. Try it.
