  1. The faster automobile is basically playing a catch-up game, with a distance (gap) of 146 m. at a catch-up speed of 72.5-55.5=17 km/h.
    Converting this speed to m/s:
    17 km/h = 17*1000 m/3600 s = 4.72 m/s

    How long will it take to catch up a distance of 146m at a speed of 4.72 m/s ?

    Use time = distance/speed.
