Boxes?

The have a relative veloicty of 105, and cover a distance of 210mi.

time=distance/velocity

I have no idea what "boxes" means here.

Very similar to the other one I showed you

for your bus columns:

distance = x miles

rate = 50 mph

time = x/50 hours

for your car columns:

distance = 210-x miles

rate = 55 mph

time = (210-x)/55 hours

Don't both of them travel for the same period of time ??

so .. x/50 = (210-x)/55

cross-multiply and solve
