Missing conditions: Unless there is some information to have the difference of their apart at some time, we cannot solve this problem. Usually,the time of catching up = D(distance) / (V2 - V1) = D/(55 -20) = D/35. Also, this is a pretty easy question. I hope you can solve it by yourself without posting again after read this hint and get the enough information about the distance.
