at2pma train leaves at 8pm 2nd train leaves at 162miles per hour faster than 1st train 2nd train takes over at10pm what are the speeds of the2 trains

1st train traveled for 8 hours
2nd train traveled for 2 hours
Their distances are the same
distance = speed * time
If the speed of the slow train is s,
8s = 2(s+162)
6s = 324
s = 54
