Trains A and B which were originally 420 miles apart began traveling towards one another on parallel adjacent tracks. How many miles from the point where train A began to travel will the trains meet?
(1) Train A is traveling at a constant speed of 94 miles per hour and train B is traveling at a constant speed of 47 miles per hour.
(2) Train A is traveling at a constant speed that is twice the constant speed of train B.
(1) Distance = 420 miles
Speed A = 94
Speed B = 47
Relative Speed = 141 miles/hour
Time taken to meet = 420/141 = ~3 hrs
Distance travelled by Train A = 94*3 = 282 i.e. 2/3 part of the journey
Sufficient
(2) Since Distance to be travelled = 420 miles
Speed of Train A = 2* Speed of Train B
Distance travelled by Train A = 2 * Distance Travelled by Train B
Sufficient
D
