The speed of train A is 6 mph slower than the speed of train B. Train A travels 230 miles in the same time it takes train B to travel 260 miles. Find the speed of each train?

  • algebra -

    Vb = Va + 6
    230/Va = 260/Vb
    ===================
    Vb/Va = 1.1304

    1.1304 Va = Va + 6
    0.1304 Va = 6
    Va = 46 mph
    Vb = 52 mph
