### A bus leaves the station at 8:00 AM and travels at an average speed of 60 mph. Another bus leaves the same station at 10:00 AM and travels at an average speed of 75 mph. At what time will the second bus catch up with the first bus?

• A.

12:00 PM

• B.

1:00 PM

• C.

2:00 PM

• D.

3:00 PM

B. 1:00 PM
Explanation
To solve this problem, you need to determine when the second bus will cover the same distance as the first bus. The second bus departs 2 hours later than the first bus and is traveling 15 mph faster. So, in those 2 hours, the first bus has covered 120 miles. The second bus needs to catch up to the first bus by covering this 120-mile gap, and it's traveling 15 mph faster. Therefore, it will take the second bus 8 hours to catch up. Adding the 2 hours it initially lagged behind, the second bus will catch up at 1:00 PM.
