**drwls**, Sunday, September 7, 2008 at 5:41amThe first truck is 2 x 45 = 90 miles ahead when the second truck starts.

Once they are both moving, the distance between them decreases at a rate of 10 mi/hr. It will therefore take 90/10 = nine hours. The time when the second truck catches up is 9 hours after 11 AM, or 8:00 PM.
