Trains a and b are traveling in the same direction on parallel tracks;Train a is traveling 40mph and train b is traveling 50mph. Train A passes a station at 8:15 am. If train b passes the same station at 8:27 am what time will train b catch up to train a?
I know this is a distant rate a time question but cannot seem to write out the correct formula and arrive at a correct answer.
