Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.040 miles. their total speed is 600 miles per hour. the total distance is 440 so the total time is \[\frac{440}{600}=\frac{11}{15}\] that is elevenfifteenth of an hour. one fifteenth of an hour is 4 minutes, so eleven fifteenths is 44 minutes. 4 minutes before they crash into each other is therefore 40 minutes. if they travel at 600 mph for 40 minutes they go \[600\times \frac{2}{3}=400\] because 40 minutes is twothirds of an hour. therefore they are 40 miles apart.
