Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0d=vt We're looking for when they're at the same distance and we k now the Garcias left 20 minutes ahead of the Kankers. 48t=60(t20) 48t=60t1200 12t=1200 t=100 So the Kankers drove for 100 minutes and the Garcias drove for 80 minutes when they met. The Garcias overtook the Kankers at 9:40am
