I don't have any idea how to solve this. Could someone show me the steps in solving this word problem? I am at a loss!

Abus leaves a station at 1 pm., traveling west at a rate of 44 mi/h. One hour later a second bus leaves the same station, traveling east at a rate of 48 mi/h.What time will both of the buses be at 274 mi apart?

274= 44*time + 48(time-1)
solve for time.
