# Points A and B ar

Let the speed of the 1st car at point A and 2nd car at point B travelling in positive x - axis direction be x and y respectively.

Case 1: Same Direction

Distance Travelled by 1st and 2nd Car in 7 hours are 7x and 7y respectively.

Both the cars will meet outside of the points A and B which are 70 km apart. So, the 1st car will travel 70 km more distance from 2nd car meeting each other in 7 hours.

7x - 7y = 70

x - y = 10.....(1)

Case 2: Opposite Direction

Distance Travelled by 1st and 2nd Car in 1 hours are x and y respectively.

Both the cars will meet in between the points A and B which are 70 km apart. So, the sum of distance travelled by 1st car and distance travelled by 2nd car meeting each other in 1 hours is equal to 70 km.

x + y = 70 .....(2)

Adding equations (1) and (2), we get -

2x = 80

x = 40

substitute the value of x in equation (2), we get -

y = 30

Thus, the speed of 1st car = 40 km/h

and, the speed of 2nd car = 30 km/h
