when they cross for first time, they traveled the distance \( \large d_1, d_2 \) such that: \[\Large {d_1} + {d_2} = 18\] where: \[\Large \begin{gathered} {d_1} = {v_1}{t_0} = 1.2 \cdot {t_0} \hfill \\ {d_2} = {v_2}{t_0} = 1.8 \cdot {t_0} \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \] \( \large t_0\) is the time at they cross each other for first time. Afetr a substitution, I get: \[\Large 1.2 \cdot {t_0} + 1.8 \cdot {t_0} = 18\] Please solve that equation for \( \large t_0 \)
