I have another question that is pestering me. Runner A is 3.6 km west of a flagpole and is running w/ constant V of 2.6 km/h while Runner B is 4.0 km east of the flagpole and is running w/ constant V of 5.2 km/ hour west. What will the distance be of the two runners from the flagpole when their paths cross?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I do not understand how you determine when their paths cross. I understand that you have to set their equations equal, but I do not understand what those equations would even be.. Thanks a million for you help.
