Two cars are traveling in the same direction: one at 45 miles/hr and the other at 60 miles/hr. If the slower car is 30 miles ahead of the faster car, how long does it take the faster car to catch up with the slower car?

Note  that  every hour.....the  faster  car  makes  up     60  -  45   =  15 miles on the slower car

 

So.....to close  a  30 mile gap   it will take    30   /  15   =    2  hours

 

 

cool cool cool
