**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.
