**Reiny**, Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 9:54pmSure hope they were on different tracks

let speed of of cattle train be x mph

when they met, cattle train went 18 hrs

distance gone by cattle train = 18x miles

speed of diesel train = 45 mph

when they met, diesel went 4(45) or 180 miles

Ahhh, but they went the same distance when they met

18x = 180

x = 10

cattle train went 10 mph
