At 10:00 AM, a car leaves a house at a rate of 60 mi/h.At the same time, another car leaves the smae house at a rate of 50 mi/h in the opposite direction. At what time will the cars be 330 miles apart?

I tried to make a equation, 50h+60h=330. I divided 330 by 110. so, I got h=3. Is this right?

The cars will be 330 miles apart in 3 hours. You got that part right. So the final answer is 1:00 pm since the question asks for what time.

If you ever need any help with homework.
