Traveling 12371

Behind a cyclist traveling at an average speed of 20 km/h, he left the same place 2 hours later than a passenger car at an average speed of 60 km/h. How long and at what distance will the passenger car catch up with the cyclists?

Correct answer:

t =  1 h
s =  60 km

Step-by-step explanation:

20(t+2) = 60t

20·(t+2) = 60·t

40t = 40

t = 40/40 = 1

t = 1

Our simple equation calculator calculates it.
s=60 t=60 1=60 km
