PLZ PLZ, SOMEONE HELP ME ON THIS PROBLEM!!! Route 66 goes from Chicago to L.A and extends 2448 miles. Julie begins in Chicago and drives at an average rate of 45mph on route 66 toward Los Angeles. At the same time Nemri begins in L.A. and drives on route 66 at an average rate of 50mph toward Chicago. If Julie and Nemri maintain these average speeds, how long after they start will they meet?
