Train A and B are traveling in the same direction on a parallel track. Train A is traveling at 100 miles per hour and train B is traveling at 120 miles per hour. Train A passes a station at 2:20 pm. If train B passes the same station at 2:35pm, at what time will train B catch up to train A?
What interval of time passes between train A passing the station and train B reaching the station?
How far does train A travel in the time it takes train B to reach the station.?
How far is train A from train B when train B passes the station, or what distance between the two trains must train B close when train B passes the station?
If train B is traveling at 120mph and train A 100mph, at what net speed is train B overtaking train A?
Being D miles apart when train B passes the station and train B overtaking train A at Vmph, the increment ot time required for train B to overtake train A becomes T = D/V making the time of meeting 2:35 PM + T.
