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!
