Simultaneously 25191

A tourist who travels at a speed of 8 km in 2 hours and a cyclist who travels at a speed of 10 km in half an hour set off from two places 24 km apart simultaneously. How long are they on the road before they meet?

Correct answer:

t =  1 h

Step-by-step explanation:

s=24 km v1=8/2=4 km/h v2=10/0.5=20 km/h  s = s1+s2  s=v1 t+v2 t 24=4 t+20 t  24t=24  t=2424=1  t=1=1 h
