## anonymous one year ago A van and a car both traveled a distance of 190 km from Rose Town to Orchid Town. The car left Rose Town 50 minutes after the van, but it arrived at Orchid Town 20 minutes earlier than the van. If the average speed of the van was 60 km/h, find the average speed of the car.

So 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:$time = \frac{ distance }{ speed }$

So I think it was 95 km/h?

Yeah, that's right.
