Answer:passenger train is travelling 58mph

freight train at 38 mph

Step-by-step explanation:first i listed all the numbers that could divide 190

1,2,5,10,19,38

& then it was simple from there .

next all i had to do is add 20 to each number and then see if that number could divide 290

38 could divide 190

38+20 =58

290÷58=5

190 ÷38=5

it took the passenger train 5 mins to travel 290 miles while the freight train took 5 mins to trvel 190 miles
