From points A and B, the distance between which is 260 km, a cyclist and a motorcyclist drove towards each other at the same time. The speed of the cyclist is 13 km / h, and the speed of the motorcyclist is 52 km / h. How long after the start of the movement will the cyclist and the motorcyclist meet?
1. Let’s determine the speed at which a cyclist and a motorcyclist are approaching each other, if the cyclist moves at a speed of 13 kilometers per hour, and the motorcyclist moves at a speed of 52 kilometers per hour:
13 + 52 = 65 (km / h).
2. Find out how long after the start of the movement, the cyclist and the motorcyclist will meet if the distance between point A and point B is 260 kilometers, and the speed of their convergence is 65 kilometers per hour:
260: 65 = 4 (h).
Answer: The cyclist and motorcyclist will meet in 4 hours.
