or you can find it through time.

40/(t-2)=10+40/t

t=10 and average speed 400/10=40

Sorry, could I get some step by step explanations of these answers? I know the formula is:

Distance=Rate * Time

But I can't seem to see how you guys came up with your equations.
Thanks!

sorry i had a typo. the equasion was supposed to read 400/(t-2)=10+400/t

average speed of A equals av speed of B + 10.
