Overtake 4682

The cyclist leaves Prague at a speed of 24 km / h. An hour later, a car drives behind him at 60km / h. How far from Prague, and how long will the car overtake the cyclist?

Correct answer:

t =  0.6667 h
s =  40 km

Step-by-step explanation:


24(t+1)=60t

24•(t+1)=60•t

36t = 24

t = 2/3 ≈ 0.666667

Our simple equation calculator calculates it.
s=60 t=60 0.6667=40 km
