Walkers

From points A and B simultaneously started against each other two walkers. After meeting both continue to B. Second walker came to B 1.8 hours before the first walker. It's speed is 2.9 times of speed of the first pedestrian.

How many hours went pedestrians before they met?

Result

t =  0.9 h

Solution:

To solve this example are needed these knowledge from mathematics:

Do you have a linear equation or system of equations and looking for its solution? Or do you have quadratic equation? Do you want to convert length units? Do you have a system of equations and looking for calculator system of linear equations?
