A train left Podunk and traveled west at 70 km/h. Two hours later, another train left Podunk and traveled east at 90 km/h. How many hours had the first train traveled when they were 1420 km apart?

How do you solved this?

    I translated your English into Math and got
    70t+140 + 90t = 1420

    Take it from there.

    where did you get 140 from?

    75T + 150 = 100T
    T= 6
