# From two cities, the distance between which was 260 km, two cars drove towards each other at the same time and met

From two cities, the distance between which was 260 km, two cars drove towards each other at the same time and met in 2 hours. Another car was traveling at a speed of 70 km / h. What speed was the first car driving?

Let’s calculate how far the second car traveled. Let’s multiply the speed of the second car – 70 kilometers per hour by the travel time – 2 hours:
70 * 2 = 140 kilometers.
The second car covered a distance of 140 kilometers.
Let’s calculate how far the first car traveled. Subtract from the total distance – 260 kilometers, the distance that the second car traveled – 140 kilometers:
260 – 140 = 120 kilometers.
The first car drove 120 kilometers.
120: 2 = 60 kilometers per hour.
Answer: the speed of the first car is 60 kilometers per hour.
