# Two cars drove out simultaneously towards each other from two cities, the distance between which is 600 km

**Two cars drove out simultaneously towards each other from two cities, the distance between which is 600 km, and met in 4 hours. Determine the speed of each car if one was moving faster than the other by 12 km / h.**

1. Let’s calculate how many more kilometers a car has traveled, the speed of which is 12 kilometers per hour more.

12 * 4 = 48 kilometers.

2. Find out the distance that the cars have traveled equally.

600 – 48 = 552 kilometers.

3. Let us determine at what speed the first car drove per hour, if it is known that it was on the way for 4 hours.

552/2/4 = 69 kilometers.

4. Find out the speed of the second car if it is known that it traveled 48 kilometers more than the first car.

(552/2 + 48) / 4 = 81 kilometers.

Answer: The speed of the first car was 69 kilometers per hour, and the speed of the second car was 81 kilometers per hour.
