Two cars travel in the same direction along a straight highway, one at a constant speed of 55 mi/h and the other at 65 mi/h.

(a) Assuming that they start at the same point, how much sooner does the faster car arrive at a destination 10 mi away?

______ min

(b) How far must the faster car travel before it has a 15-min lead on the slower car?

2. Relevant equations

I'm not sure how to set up an equation.

3. The attempt at a solution

I divided 10 mi by each speed, then multiplied each result by 60 and compared minutes.
