Please help with a problem of two objects moving in the same direction.?

Archie and Veronica are both driving east on Riverdale Drive. At 3:00, Archie driving at 50 mph, was 5 miles east of Veronica. A little later, Veronica driving at 55 mph, passed Archie. At what time did Veronica pass Archie.

    At 4:00. In an hour Archie goes 50 miles and Veronica goes 55 miles. Since Archie was 5 miles ahead to start with, they are now at the same place.
