|dw:1449797415288:dw| train 1 (x=0) \(x_f=x_i+v\Delta t=0+(95mi/hr)\Delta t\) train 1 (x=0) \(x_f=x_i+v\Delta t=560~mi+(-105mi/hr)\Delta t\) same final position, \(x_f\). We have equation: \((95mi/hr)\Delta t=560~mi-(105mi/hr)\Delta t\) Now we just solve for \(\Delta t\)

i made a mistake (copying and pasting my own work) the second time it says "train 1 (x=0)" was supposed to say "train 2 (x=560)"
