| **The length of the path between the cities is 360 km, the bus takes 6 hours, the scooter takes 12 hours. How many hours will the meeting between the bus and the scooter take place if they simultaneously enter from these cities towards each other.**

1. We calculate with what speed the bus was moving:

360: 6 = 60 km / h.

2. We calculate the speed of the scooter:

360: 12 = 30 km / h.

3. We accept for x time, after which the bus and the scooter will meet.

4. The bus will travel 60 km, a scooter 30 km.

5. Considering that the total length of the path of vehicles is equal to the distance between cities, we compose the equation

60x + 30x = 360;

90x = 360;

x = 4 hours.

Answer: the bus and the scooter will meet 4 hours after leaving their cities.
