A car going 50mi/h overtakes and passes another car moving at 45mi/h. What length of road is required for the operation? Assume that each car is 15ft. long and that there is a 60ft. space between them before and after passing. Taking into account the approach of a car from the opposite direction at 50mi/h, what clear length of road is required?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
