Two hikers are 12 miles apart and walking toward each other. They meet in 2 hours. Find the rate of each hiker if one hiker walls 1.6 mph faster than the other.
Let speed of 1hiker be x mph and other be y mph.
Then, Time taken to walk 12miles towards each other=12/(x+y)
Solving both equation.
Speed of one hiker, x=2.2 mph
speed of other hiker,y=2.2+1.6=3.8 mph
