First, fine the time and distance. Time = 4 hours Distance = 'y' Using Distance over time, we know we know he traveled 'x' mph If he traveled twice as fast as Laura, then they meet at 3/4'th. Time = 4 hours Distance = 337.5 337.5 divided by 4 = 84.375 mph

@Defiance I'm having a little trouble understanding where you got 337.5 if the distance was 450?

337.5 is 3/4th of the distance. If they meet at a reset area. He traveled twice as fast. Then he goes farther then her. Not all the way.
