two cars traveling from the same place at the same time and travel in opposite directions. one car travels an average of 20 kph faster than the other. After 2 hours the cars are 40okm apart. find the speed of each car.
Let's the first car speed be V. Then the speed of the other car is V+20 and the distance between them after 2 hours would be D = 2V + 2(V+20). From the other side, D=400km. Hence 2V + 2(V+20) = 400 ==> V = 80. So, the first car's speed is 80km/h and the second one's is 80+20=100km/h.
