How do I start this problem

**MathMate**, Wednesday, June 3, 2009 at 2:11pmWhen two runners run toward each other from a distance D, it is like one person running the same distance, but with the sum of the two speeds.

Give it a try and see what you get.

**DrBob222**, Wednesday, June 3, 2009 at 2:13pmI would start by recognizing that the tme of each runner is the same.

distance = rate*time.

Distance A runs is X. Distance B runs is 200-x.

Set the times equal and solve for x.
