The train leaves toledo at a speed of 40 mph for 3 1/2 hours until it arrives at it's destination in Indiana. At the same time the train left Toledo, you and Grandma Melba Jean headed out at a speed of 35 mph. How far from the train are you when it arrives it Podunk?
If I take the 40 times 3.5 and 35 times 3.5 then subtract (getting 17.5) would that be my answer?

Just draw one horizontal line through each row, and then draw one vertical line through any vertical row.
