A car leaves San Francisco, traveling east at 65 miles per hour.

The driver takes a bathroom break of 15 min every 3 hours.

Another car departs New York City at the same time, traveling at 60 miles per hour.

This driver takes a bathroom break of only 10 minutes every 4 hours.

Assuming they both sleep 6 hours a day (from 12 midnight to 6 am each day),

(Cars travel the same roads, traffic can be ignored and acceleration is assumed to be instantaneous?)

When they meet?

To solve this problem, you need to know the total distance by road from NYC to San Francisco.
