1. Boxes?

The have a relative veloicty of 105, and cover a distance of 210mi.

time=distance/velocity

I have no idea what "boxes" means here.

2. Very similar to the other one I showed you

distance = x miles
rate = 50 mph
time = x/50 hours

distance = 210-x miles
rate = 55 mph
time = (210-x)/55 hours

Don't both of them travel for the same period of time ??
so .. x/50 = (210-x)/55
cross-multiply and solve
