Answer by mananth(12270)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! I have assumed Car B rate as 70 km/hour instead of 7 which looks practical. If not then replace 70 with 7 and you will get the desired answer. Car A 60 km/hour car B 70 km/hour .. Let Car A travel x km in the time car b travels 260-x x/60 = 260-x/70 70x=60(260-x) 70x=15600-60x 70x+60x=15600 130x= 15600 x= 120 km speed of car A = 60 km/hour 120/60 = time =2 hours. They will be 260 km apart after 2 hours
