| **The car will catch up with the cyclist in 0.4 hours, find the distances between them if the speed of the cyclist is 18.5 km per hour, and the speed of the car is 5.6 more, find the distance.**

Vehicle speed is 5.6 times that of a cyclist:

18.5 * 5.6 = 103.6 km / h.

Since the car catches up with the cyclist, the speed of convergence of the cyclist and the car is equal to their difference:

103.6 – 18.5 = 85.1 km / h.

Since the meeting took place after 0.4 hours, the distance between objects can be determined as follows:

s = v * t = 85.1 * 0.4 = 85.5 km.

Answer: A car and a bike were separated by 85.5 km.
