Andrew and Stephen drive on the highway in the same direction at respective rates of 72 and 80 kmh. If Stephen is 4 km behind Andrew, by how much does he have to increase his speed to catch up with Andrew in 20 minutes?


1 kmh
2 kmh
3 kmh
4 kmh
5 kmh

Can someone explain this in detail?
Thanks

In 20 minuets, Andrew can drive 20 (72/60) = 24 km
Since Andrew is already 4 km ahead of Stephen, Stephen has to cover 28 km in 20 minuets.
Then, the km/h speed for Stephen would be = (28/20)60 = 84.
Increased speed = 84 - 80 = 4km/h
