In 4.5 hours the trains are 405 miles apart find the speed of each trainAnswer by mananth(12270)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Train I x mph Train II x+ 10 mph .. They are moving away from each other So add up their speed. combined speed = x+ 1 x + 10 ( 2 x + 10 ) Time = 4.5 hours Distance = 405 miles Distance = speed * time ( 2 x 10 )* 4.5 = 405 9.00 x + 45 = 405 9 x = 405 + -45 9 x = 360 / 9 x= 40 mph Train I = 40 mph Train II 40 + 10 = 50 mph m.ananth@hotmail.ca
