Two cars

Two cars started against each other at the same time to journey long 346 km. The first car went 53 km/h and the second 53 km/h.

What distance will be between these cars 20 minutes before meet?

Correct result:

x =  35.33 km


v1=53 km/h v2=53 km/h s=346 km  T=20 min h=20/60  h=0.33333 h  0<x<s x=v1 T+v2 T=53 0.3333+53 0.3333=1063=35.33 km

We would be pleased if you find an error in the word problem, spelling mistakes, or inaccuracies and send it to us. Thank you!
