10:00 is the answer

At 2:45, Train-A has a 1/2-hour lead on Train-B = 1/2 of the speed of Train-A = 5 miles.Train-B overtakes Train-A at the rate of (50 - 40) = 10 miles per hour.It takes Train-B (5/10) = 1/2 hour to make up the deficit.Train-B catches up to Train-A at 3:15 AM.

it would take 36 minutes.

i think it would take 1 hour

Distance d = speed x time With one hour head start the slower car traveled d= 55x1 = 55 miles The faster car catches up when they have traveled same distance d = 65t = 55t + 55 10t = 55 t = 5.5 hours

8:08am when train b reaches the station the distance from train a is 12 miles. the relative speed between the trains is 20mph passing 12 miles in 20mph takes 0.6 hours which is 36 minutes. 36 minutes after 7:32 is 8:08

Train B Will Catch Up To Train A In 11 Hours.

Hopefully never, because they are obviously on a collision course. I hope they're cargo trains and not passenger trains.

About 40 miles but if you're in London, catch the Eurostar train from St Pancras and it passes through Ebbsfleet.
