Mervin and Leela are in bumper cars. They are at opposite ends of a 100-meter track heading toward each other. If Mervin moves at a rate of 5.5 meters per second and Leela moves at a rate of 3.2 meters per second, how long does it take for the to collide?

100/(5.5+3.2)=11.49 seconds.
Check by (5.5*11.49)+(3.2*11.49)=100
