the distance between town A and town B was 210km. At 9:20pm a bus sets off from town A to town B and a car left from town B to town A. The average speed of the bus was 60km/h and the average speed of the car was 80km/h.
a)Calculate the time at which the car passed the bus.
b)How far had the car traveled when it passed the bus?

  • math - ,

    they both drove the same time, t hrs

    so 60t + 80t = 210
    140t = 210
    t = 210/140 = 1.5

    after 1.5 hrs, they met.
    and that time was 9:20 + 1:30 = 10:50 pm

    distance traveled by car = 1.5(80) = 120 km
