Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Let speed of car B be x Speed of car A is (x  15) Distance traveled by car B in 1.5 h = x * 1.5 Distance traveled by car A in 2 h = (x  15) * 2 These two distances are equal Therefore, 1.5x = 2(x  15) 1.5x = 2x  30 subtract 1,5x 0 = 0.5x  30 add 30 30 = 0.5x divide by 0.5 30/0.5 = x x = 60
