    Well, let's first look at how long this distance was, we can find that by looking at car As velocity and the time it took for it to travel it. We know i had a velocity of 22mph and it took it 2.4 hours to travel the desired distance, so, in order to find the distance, we have to multiply the velocity and the time travelled: \[22x2.4=52.8\] Si we now know that the distance was 52.8 miles. Now, how would you think we can find the velocity for the other car, that travelled for 4h?
