Bob and Bobek

At 10h 20min runs Bobek from hat at average speed 12 km/h. At what time must run out Bob at speed 18 km/h to catch him 9 kilometers from the hat?

Result

h = 10:35 Wrong answer

Solution:


12(t-(10+20/60))=9
18(t-h)=9

720t = 7980
18h-18t = -9

h = 12712 ≈ 10.583333
t = 13312 ≈ 11.083333
