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 = 210x miles
rate = 55 mph
time = (210x)/55 hours
Don't both of them travel for the same period of time ??
so .. x/50 = (210x)/55
crossmultiply and solve
