Answer to Question #23929 in Algebra for rahghav
Then the distance that thief drives by time t is 45*(0.5 + t) km and the
distance that drives owner is 50*t km. So we have the equation:
45*(0.5 + t) = 50*t
27.5 + 45t = 50t
(50 - 45)t = 27.5
5t = 27.5
t = 5.5 hours
So, owner will overtake the thief at 7.30p.m.
