Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the car was 70 minutes faster than the van over 190km. You need to find out how long it took the van to get to Orchid town, and take away 70min from that time, and then translate that back into speed. tip:\[time = \frac{ distance }{ speed }\]
