I will get back with you A.S.A.P. Cheers!

• 1. After 15 minutes, the first train has travelled 22.5 miles. The trains are now 427.5 miles apart. Since they approach each other at a combined speed of 190 m/h, they will pass in 2 ¼ hours, at 2:30 pm.

2. d + q = 40

10d + 25q = 490 Solve simultaneous equations.

10d + 10q = 400

15q = 90

q = 6 --> d = 34

3. S1 + S2 = 6000 (S for "stash." Why not.)

S1*.07 + S2*.05 = 372 Simul eqs again.

S1*.05 + S2*.05 = 300

S1*.02 = 72

S1 = \$3600 S2=\$2400
