Question description

So, we have two cars one in Frankfurt and one in Seattle, hitting the road at the same time. The one in Germany is destined for Augsburg which is 360 kilometers away and will be able to average on the Autobahn at 120 km/h. The other one gets on the I-5 and makes an average of 75 miles per hour on the 272 miles to Springfield.

Who Arrives First?

How is this calculated step by step please!

Where would the guy in Germany be if the U.S. driver called him at mile 225?
