What time will the van take over the bus?

Distance = Speed*Time, so Distance/Speed = Time

The bus has a 40 mph*1 hour = 40 mile head start.  The van is moving 15 mph faster that the bus.  The van will close the 40 mile gap and catch the bus in (40 miles)/(15 mph) = 2 2/3 hours or 2 hours and 40 minutes
