    Do such question, normally you set Y be the answer you want to find,

    here, i.e., the time take for Peter to overlap Mary (Y in second)

    Then form the equation:

    (When Peter ran 400m far from Mary, then he overlap)

    1.2m/s x Y = 4km/h x Y + 400

    resolve all unit to meter

    1.2Y = (4000/3600)Y + 400

    Y = 4500

    So it take 4500 seconds to overlap Mary

    (or 75 minutes)
