A transit train from Boston to New York and a passenger train from New York to Boston both departed at 3:00. The distance between the New York station and the Boston station is 280 miles. The speed of the transit train was 80 miles per hour. The speed of the passenger train was 60 miles per hour. At what time will the trains pass each other?

Combined, the trains cover ( 80 + 60) = 140 miles per hour

280 miles wil be covered in two hours.....when the trains meet it will be 5:00
