Runner A is initially 2.4 km west of a flagpole and is running with a constant velocity of 7.6 km/h due east. Runner B is initially 7.6 km east of the flagpole and is running with a constant velocity of 4.4 km/h due west. What will be the distance of the two runners from the flagpole when their paths cross?

1. they are 10 km apart, and are closing at a rate of 12 kph

they will meet in 5/6 h

pick one and find the distance they travel in 5/6 h , then find the distance from the flagpole
