At 3:30 p.m., Berto’s train was 34 miles past the egg farm, traveling at an average speed of 85 miles per hour. At the same time on a nearby track, Eduardo’s train was traveling at an average speed of 110 miles per hour and had 12 miles to go before it reached the egg farm. To the nearest hundredth of an hour, after how much time will the trains meet up?

34 miles past the egg farm + 12 miles from egg farm = 46 miles between the two trains

they are closing at 110 - 85 = 25 miles per hour

46 miles / 25 m/hr = 1.84 hrs when they meet
