HELPP!! Two airplanes leave an airport at the same time. the first airplane flies east at 635mph. the second airplane flies west at 615mph. how long will it take for the airplanes to be 1,000 miles apart?

Answer = 0.8 hours = 48 minutes
Relative Speed of Fast plane = 635 mph + 615 mph = 1250 mph
Time to 1000 miles = 1000 miles / 1250 miles per hour = 0.8 hours
Speed in opposite direction = v1 + v2
Speed in Same direction = v1-v2
v1 = speed of fast object
v2 = speed of slower object

its bout flieing so how can it be 48 minutes? :/
start with the basics : speed = distance/time
Draw yourself a diagram.
would agree with @Jhannybean
thats what i got :b
@Rachel_K Would you please stop giving answers? It's against the code of conduct here on OS.
i didn't i explained in the beginning im just confirming what i got
You answered correctly above 0.8 hours = 48 minutes.
Later you wrote 8 hours and 48 minutes.
ok then so i was right
Yes, you were, and your explanation above about adding speeds was good.
If one plane alone traveling at 635 mph would cover 1000 miles in little more than an hour, then it makes sense that two planes traveling in opposite directions both at 600 something mph would be 1000 miles part from each other in under an hour.
As @Rachael said total speed = 635mph+ 615mph = 1250mph
however, to fly 1,000 miles = 1000m/1250mph = 0.8 hours
I think we should give it to @Rachel_K here. I am giving it as best response.
