 Travel_Word_Problems/44544: A car leaves a town at 40 miles per hour. Two hours later a second car leaves the town traveling the same route and overtakes the first car in 5 hours and 20 minutes. how fast was the second car traveling?1 solutions Answer 29427 by Nate(3500)   on 2006-07-01 16:02:01 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Since the first car was given a two-hour head start, it traveled 2(40 mi/h) = 80 miles .... First Car's Rate: 40t + 80 Second Car's Rate: xt The different of the two car's traveled distance is equal to zero: 40t + 80 - xt = 0 40(16/3) + 80 - (16/3)x = 0 -(16/3)x = -240/3 - 640/3 -(16/3)x = -880/3 x = (880/3)(3/16) = 55 The second car was traveling 55 miles per hour. Check: First Car: y = 40x + 80 Second Car: y = 55x Where 'y' is the distance and 'x' is the time: -y + 40x = -80 + y - 55x = 0 -15x = -80 x = 16/3 5 hours and 20 minutes
