so they are 12 minutes apart. Train A has traveled 12 miles in that time (d=v*t)

so, the relative distance is 12miles, at a relative velocity of 20mph, it takes

time=12/20=3/5 hr or 36 min, so the time of catching up is 36 min after 10:37

10:37-10:25=12 minutes=0.2hour difference. When B catches up in 12

minutes, their distance traveled will

be equal: 60t=80(0.2), t=0.266666 hr

=16 minutes.
