Joe leaves in a car headed for North Carolina traveling 63mph. 1.3 hours later, his friend heads out to chase him down and give him a suitcase he forgot. If the friend is traveling 71mph, it will take him? hours to catch up with Joe. Round to the nearest tenth. Could somebody explain how to do this problem, please?
