Let the slower snail be moving at x cm/min, then the faster slow would be moving at (x+2) cm/min.

The relative speed of the two = x+x+2=(2x+2)cm/min

Total distance covered by the two in the 25 minutes will be given by:

(2x+2)cm/min * 25min =(50x+50) cm.

But the distance between the two was initially 250cm, which is the distance the two covers before meeting. This implies that:

50x+50+250 , Implying that 50x=200 and x =4

Thus:

The speed of the slower snail is 4 cm/min and

The speed of the faster snail is 6 cm/min.
