    I have no idea what "boxes" means here.

    Very similar to the other one I showed you

    for your bus columns:
    distance = x miles
    rate = 50 mph
    time = x/50 hours

    for your car columns:
    distance = 210-x miles
    rate = 55 mph
    time = (210-x)/55 hours

    Don't both of them travel for the same period of time ??
    so .. x/50 = (210-x)/55
    cross-multiply and solve

    A bus travels at 90km/h. how far will it have traveled after 210 minutes?
