Cenda and Pepa went to the event. Cenda started alone. Canda started after him for 20 minutes. How long took Cenda to catch him? Cenda traveling at 15 km/h, and Pepa traveling at 25 km/h.

Result

t =  0.5 h

Solution:


15(t+20/60) = 25 t

600t = 300

t = 12 = 0.5

Calculated by our simple equation calculator.
