Homework Help: Math Word Problem

Posted by amy on Thursday, September 16, 2010 at 12:42am.

A metra commuter train leaves Union Station in Chicago at 12 noon. Twp hours later an Amtrak train leaves on the same track, traveling at an average speed that is 50 miles per hour faster than the Metra train. At 3PM the Amtrak train is 10 miles behind the commuter train. How fast is each going?

I don't understand how to solve this.

I only know how to solve it if the problem has the velocity for both.

Please could someone write the equation
