math
X MPH = train a speed, (x + 10) mph = train b speed, d1 + d2 = 960 m1, 8x + 8(x + 10) = 960, 8x + 8x + 80 = 960, 16x + 80 = 960, 16x = 960 - 80, 16x = 880, x = 55 mph, (x + 10) = 55 + 10 = 65 mph.

Train A passes the station at 13:00 and train B passes at 13:22. Train A has a headway of 22 minutes, which translates into 100 mph*22/60 = 36.67 miles Speed of train B exceeds that of train by (110-100)=10 mph. Therefore time to catch-up = 36.67/10 *60 minutes = 220 minutes ...

If they travel in opposite directions, then just add their distances distance = speed * time 2x + 2(x+25) = 162 4x + 50 = 162 4x = 112 x = 28 so, the slow train travels 28 mph the fast train travels 53 mph
