    Train A leaves 15 minutes = 1/4 hour earlier than train B (from the station) After x hours the distance traveled by both train are Distance train A= (1/4)(40)+40x Distance train B= 48x Train B catch up train A if the two distance are equal \(10+40x=48x\) \(8x=10\) \(x=5/4\) hour = 1 hour 15 minutes So Train B catcch up Train A at 3:50 am
