Two buses leave a station at the same time and travel in opposite directions. One bus travels 18 miles per hour faster than the other. If the two buses are 280 miles apart after 2 hours, what is the rate of each bus?

Hello Guest!

 

\((b+b+18)2=280\\ 4b+36=280\\ b=61\\ a=79\)

 

Bus A travels 79 miles an hour,
Bus B runs 61 miles an hour.
