A red train traveling at 72 km/h and a green train traveling at 144 km/h are headed toward one another along a straight, level track. When they are 950m apart, each engineer sees the other’s train and applies the brakes. The brakes decelerate each train

## math (stats)

For a car traveling 30 mph in normal conditions, the distance required to brake to a stop is normally with a mean of 50 feet and a standard deviation of 8. you are traveling in a area at 30 mph and a car swerves into your path at a distance of 60 feet
