Since Victoria and Margaret are moving in opposite directions therefore their velocities add up , hence relative velocity of approach = 55+70 = 125 mph

Distance = 625 miles

Hence velocity = distance / time

or time = distance / velocity

or

Hope this helps you!!

Thank You!!!

Then,

Now,

There fore,

x=625/125
