The fly a combined 2100km

2100km=500km/hr*time1 + 700km/hr*time2
but time2=time1-1

2100=500*time1+700(time1-1)
now solve for time 1

The equation to simply put words into numbers would be....."500x + 700x - 700 = 2100".....

Then if you solved for "x", you would get x=7/3.
So the plane and jet will meet in 7/3 hours. If yoy add that to 12:00 PM being noon, you would get 2:20, so the plane and the jet will meet at 2:20 PM.
