Cassie leaves Escanaba at 8:30 AM heading for Marquette on her bike. She bikes at a uniform rate of 12 miles per hour. Brian leaves Marquette at 9:00 AM heading for Escanaba on his bike. He bikes at a uniform rate of 16 miles per hour. They both bike on the same 62-mile route between Escanaba and Marquette. At what time in the morning do they meet? (Express your answer in standard hh:mm time form.)

Cassie is 30 minutes into her ride   ( she has covered 6 miles)   when Brian starts

  there is then 56 miles between them...their closing speed is (12 + 16) = 28 m/hr

     56 m / 28 m/hr = 2 hrs when they meet      two hours after Brian started    9:00 + 2 hrs = 11:00 when they meet
