| **From two villages, the distance between which is 492 km, two cars drove towards each other. The speed of one car is 88 km / h and the other is 76 km / h. How long will it take for cars to meet?**

1. Let’s find the speed of convergence of cars. To do this, let’s summarize the vehicle speeds.

88 + 76 = 164 km / h speed of convergence of cars.

2. Knowing the distance between cities and the speed of convergence of cars, we find the time after which the cars will meet. To do this, we need to divide the distance between the villages by the speed of approach of cars.

492/164 = 3 hours cars will drive before the meeting.

Answer: The meeting of cars will take place 3 hours after the start of their movement.
