Bus vs. train

Bus started from point A 10 minutes before the train started from the same place. The bus went an average speed of 49 km/h, train 77 km/h.
To point B train and bus arrived simultaneously.

Calculate time of train journey, if train and bus travelled the same distance.

Result

t =  17.5 min

Solution: 49 (t+10) = 77 t

28t = 490

t = 352 = 17.5
