Two cars travel at the same constant speed. The first car travels for 10 minutes, the second for 27 minutes. If the second car travels 18 miles farther tht the first, how far does each car travel?

The second car travels 17 minutes after that first car stops. During that added time, it goes 18 miles, so it is traveling 18/(17/60) = 63.5 mph

They both had the same speed when traveling.

The fist car went (1/6 hour)*63.5 = 10.58 miles

The second car went (27/60 h)(63.5) = 28.58 miles
