Two cars lost in a blinding rainstorm are traveling across a large field, each thinking they are on the road. They collide. If the distance between them is 174 meters and the red car is traveling at 6 mph at a 45 degree angle toward the impact point, and the blue car is traveling at 6.1 mph at 60 degree angle to the impact point. How much time passes.
Using the formula x=x0+v0t.
I am not understanding how to manipulate the numbers in order to come up with the answer of 53.4 seconds...please help
