**Damon**, Wednesday, January 7, 2009 at 10:54amcall t time after a passes

distance a = 100 t

distance b = 110 (t-.5)

-----------------------

0 = 100 t -110(t-.5)

10 t = 55

5 = 5.5 hours

3:10 + 5:30 = 8:40

**drwls**, Wednesday, January 7, 2009 at 10:57amWhen train B passes the station, train A is (1/2 h)(100 mph) = 50 miles ahead. The distance between trains decreases at 10 miles per hour. Therefore B will catch A in five hours, at 8:10 pm
