Train A is travling 40 mile per hour and train B is travling 48 miles per hour. Train A passes a station at 8:20am if train B passes the same station at 8:35 at what time will train B catch train A?Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15660)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Train A and train B are traveling in the same direction on parallel tracks. Train A is traveling 40 mile per hour and train B is traveling 48 miles per hour. Train A passes a station at 8:20am if train B passes the same station at 8:35 at what time will train B catch train A? : from the given information, we know that train B is 15 min (1/4 hr) behind train A, when train A passes the station : The distance between the trains at this time: * 48 = 12 mi : Let t = time required for train B to catch train A : write a distance equation: Dist = speed * time : Train B travel dist = Train A travel dist + 12 mi 48t = 40t + 12 48t - 40t = 12 8t = 12 t = t = 1.5 hr or 1 hr 30 min : 8:20 AM + 1:30 = 9:50 am, B catches A
