    Answer:

    [tex]Daniel\ will\ catch\ Frank\ in\ 4\ minutes.[/tex]

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Let total distance[tex]=d[/tex]

    Speed of Frank[tex]=45\ mph[/tex]

    [tex]Time\ taken\ to\ cover\ \frac{1}{3}\ miles=\frac{distance}{speed}=\frac{\frac{1}{3}}{45}=\frac{1}{135}\\\\Let\ after\ t\ hours(Daniel\ starts)\ Daniel\ will\ catch\ Frank.\\\\\\After\ t\ hours\ distance\ covered\ by\ Daniel=speed\times times=50\times t=50t\\\\Time\ taken\ by\ Frank=t+\frac{1}{135}\\\\Distance\ covered\ by\ Frank==speed\times times=45\times (t+\frac{1}{135})=45t+\frac{1}{3}\\\\Both\ the\ distance\ are\ equal\\\\Hence\ 50t=45t+\frac{1}{3}\\\\50t-45t=\frac{1}{3}\\\\5t=\frac{1}{3}[/tex]

    [tex]t=\frac{1}{15}\ hours\\\\t=\frac{1}{15}\times 60\ minutes\\\\t=4\ minutes[/tex]
