'A' is slower. 'B' is faster. 'A' covers 220 miles, while 'B' covers 310 miles. 'B' gained 90 miles on 'A'. Since 'B' gains 18 miles on 'A' in each hour, it took (90/18) = 5 hours for 'B' to gain 90 miles on 'A', so both stated distances were covered in 5 hours. Speed of 'A' = 220/5 = 44 Speed of 'B' = A+18 = 310/5 = 62
