Homework Help: Word Problem-Icky

Posted by Cathy on Monday, September 17, 2007 at 9:10pm.

Two sailboats are 9.8 miles apart and sailing toward each other. The larger boat sails 4 miles per hour faster than the smaller boat. The two boats pass each other after 0.7 hour. Find the speed of each boat.

I cannot figure out for the life of me how to set this one up. I already have the answer in the back, but it's just getting this set up is the problem.
