    Answer:

    59m

    Step-by-step explanation:

    No of passenger cars in the train = 6

    length of each passenger cars = 18m

    total length of 6 passenger cars = 18 * 6 = 108 m

    length of caboose = 10m

    total length of train when caboose is included = 108 m + 10 m = 118m

    _____________________________________________

    Let the length of truck be X m

    given that length of train is twice of length of truck = 2*X

    but length of train as found above is 118 m

    this implies

    2X = 118

    X = 118/2 = 59m

    Therefore length of truck is 59m
