**MathMate**, Thursday, March 8, 2012 at 9:41amLet x and y be the two speeds, x>y.

First part:

after 3 hours of driving towards each other, the distance is reduced from 230 to 20, so

3(x+y)=230-20

x+y=70

Speed of one is 10 km less than the other:

x-y=10

We have a sum and difference problem where the solution is

x=(sum+difference)/2=40

y=(sum=difference)/2=30
