**Reiny**, Saturday, May 19, 2012 at 8:17amI suggest you replace the variables with actual numbers and solve that problem.

Then repeat the same steps using the variables in the given question.

e.g.

A first train travelling at 60 km an hour takes 2 hour less to travel 300 km than a slower one takes to travel 150 km . find the different between their speed

time for 1st train = 300/60

time for 2nd train = 300/60 + 2

speed of 2nd train = 150/(300/60 + 2)

difference in speeds = 60 - 150/(300/60 + 2)

( I purposely left the arithmetic open, so that you can see where the variables go)

in the second question, I have no idea what (a0b)kg means
