Two buses started simultaneously towards each other from towns A and B which are 480 km apart. It took the first bus travelling from A to B eight hours to cover the distance and the second bus travelling from B to A, ten hours. Determine when the buses will meet after starting and at what distance from A.

Here, distance between two towns A and B, S = 480 km

v_{1} = S/8 and

v_{2} = S/10_{}If these buses meet after time t, then

S/8 x t + S/10 x t = S

On solving, we get

t = 40/9 hours

Therefore, distance from A = 480/80 x 40/9 = 800/3 = 266.7 km
