I don't think they will ever meet...because they will both wind up in traffic court for speeding!

Remember distance = rate * time

4r + 4(r + 20) = 800

8r = 720

r = 90 and r + 20 = 110

asked • 08/08/18Two cars start off 800 miles apart. They begin driving towards one another, with one car going 20 miles per hour faster than the other. If it takes 4 hours for the two cars to meet, how fast is each car traveling?
