Oa------>(x-15) (x)<--------Ob |---------------250-----------------| With the equation S=So+Vo(t), we can find: Sa = Soa + Voa(t) Sb = Sob + Voa(t) Sa = 0 + (x-15)(t) Sb = 250 - x(t) Sa = (x-15)(t) after 2hr: Sa = (x-15)(2) Sb = 250 - x(2) Sa = 2x-30 Sb = 250 - 2x When the cars pass each other, it means that Sa = Sb. Therefore, 2x-30 = 250-2x 4x=280 x=70 Car a: Car b: x-15 => 70-15 = 55 x = 70 is traveling at 55mph is traveling at 70mph Is that right?
