    Answer:

      10:30 AM

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Their closure speed is the sum of their speeds, so is 40+50=90 mph. They cover the 45 mile distance in …

      time = distance/speed = 45 mi/(90 mi/h) = 1/2 h

    A half-hour after 10 AM is 10:30 AM.

    Answer:

    10:30am

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Time of departure: 10:00am

    Distance: 45 miles apart

    Speed of Train: 50mph or 5/6 mile per minute

    Speed of Bus: 40mph or 4/6 mile per minute.

    4/6mile + 5/6mile = 9/6mile or 1.5mile

    Every minute = 1.5 mile.

    45/1.5= 30 minute

    Time of depature + 30mins = 10:30am
