Two trucks

Two trucks left cities A and B against each other and met after an hour. The first car came to B 27 minutes later than the second car to A. Calculate the car speed if the distance between cities A, B is 90 km.

Correct result:

v1 =  40 km/h
v2 =  50 km/h

Solution:


Checkout calculation with our calculator of quadratic equations.

v2=50 km/hv_{2}=50 \ \text{km/h}
