What is the speeds of trains A & B ?Answer by mananth(12270)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!train B xmph train A = x-10 mph .. train A 210 miles train B 260 miles .. Time taken by both the trains is same .. 260/x =210/x-10 260(x-10)=210x 260x-2600=210x 50x=2600 x=52 mph speed of train B train A speed = 42mph
