A car passes point A driving at a constant rate of 60 km per hour. A second car, travelling at a constant rate of 75 km per hour, passes the smae point A a while later and then follows the first car. It catches the first car after travelling a distance of 75 km past point A. How many minutes after the first car passed point A did the second car pass point A?

Remember :   Distance / rate = time 

Car 1 travels for   75 km /  60 km /hr  = 1.25 hours

Car 2 travels for   75 km/75 km/hr      = 1 hour 

   1.25 hr - 1 hr = .25 hr     which is 15 minutes
