Word Problem #37


Train A departs Duluth at 7 A.M. traveling 20 miles per hour faster than train B, leaving from Sheboygan at 6 A.M. The conductor of train A is drunk. The conductor of train B is asleep. They travel on the same track from opposite directions because X and Y equal bitter saboteurs who’ve never been able to find their identities. There will be an explosion. Everyone will catch on fire and die. How far with the carnage fly when the trains collide head-on creating algebraic wreckage? Show your work.
