The two planes took off at the right time towards each other and were en route for the same time. The first plane flew at a speed of 950 km / h, and the second 700 km / h and flew to the meeting 2800 km. How far did the first plane fly before the meeting?

1. Let’s find how much time has passed from the departure to the meeting of the planes, for this we divide the distance that the second plane flew by the speed of the second plane:

2800: 700 = 4 (h).

2. Let’s find the distance that the first plane flew before the meeting, for this we multiply the speed of the first plane by the time:

950 * 4 = 3800 (km).

Answer: the first plane flew 3800 km before meeting the second.
