Runner A is initially 6.0 km west of a flagpole and is running with a constant velocity of 9.0 km/h due east. Runner B is initially 5.0 km east of the flagpole and is running with a constant velocity of 8.0 km/h due west. What will be the distance of the two runners from the flagpole when their paths cross?

2. Relevant equations

not sure...

3. The attempt at a solution

x(9.0)-6=x(8.0)-5
