If one person leaves at 65 mph and another leaves at 70 mph 5 minutes laterwhere do the come together at the same point?

Point 1
Person 1: 65 m
Person 2: 70 m
Point 2
Person 1: 130 m
Person 2: 140 m
Point 3
Person 1: 195 m
Person 2: 210 m
Point 4
Person 1: 260 m
Person 2: 280 m
Point 5
Person 1: 325 m
Person 2: 350 m
Point 6
Person 1: 390 m
Person 2: 420 m
Point 7
Person 1: 455 m
Person 2: 490 m
Point 8
Person 1: 520 m
Person 2: 560 m
Point 9
Person 1: 585 m
Person 2: 630 m
Get the pattern? Keep on going and you'll get the same point where they come together later.
Ex:
Point 10
Multiply Person 1 (65) times point number (10) and multiply Person 2 (70) times point number (10)
So on...
Hope I helped!
