  1. At time t hours from 7:00, the distances traveled by the vehicles was
    Matatu: 60t
    Car: 80(t-2)
    Since the total distance between K and M is 324 km, when the vehicles meet, we have
    60t+80(t-2) = 342
    t = 251/70 = 3:35:08

    Matatu 7:00 + 324/60 = 12:24
    Car: 9:00 + 324/80 = 13:03

    I think B and C are now within your abilities...

  2. Plzz show me the working of b and c

  3. Show me the working of b&c
