**drwls**, Saturday, January 9, 2010 at 7:03pmThe distance between the trains decreases at a rate of 50 - 40 = 10 mph = 1/6 mile per minute.

At 8:27 PM, train A is (1/6 h) * 40 miles/h = 40/6 miles ahead of B.

The 40/6 mile gap between trains will become zero after

t = (40/6 mile)/(1/6 mile/minute)

= 40 minutes
