| **A motorcyclist and a motorist drove out of the city in one direction at a speed of 48 km / h and 60 km / h, respectively. What is the distance between them in 2.8 hours?**

If a motorcyclist and a motorist move in the same direction at different speeds, then one will lag behind the other in 1 hour by the difference in their speeds. Let’s find the speed of their lagging from each other:

1) 60 – 48 = 12 (km / h)

If we know that after 1 hour the distance between them will be 12 km, then after 2.8 hours the distance between them will be:

2) 12 * 2.8 = 33.6 (km)

Answer: the distance between the motorcyclist and the motorist will be 33.6 km in 2.8 hours.
