Expert Answer:

begin mathsize 16px style let space straight d subscript 1 space is space the space distance space travelled space with space speed space 9 km divided by hr space
let space straight d subscript 2 space is space the space distance space travelled space with space speed space 12.5 straight m divided by straight s space ie. space 45 km divided by hr comma
so space left parenthesis convert space units space to space km space and space hrs right parenthesis
straight d subscript 1 plus straight d subscript 2 equals 28
9 straight t subscript 1 plus 45 straight t subscript 2 equals 28..... left parenthesis 1 right parenthesis.... d i s tan c e space equals s p e e d cross times t i m e
straight t subscript 1 plus straight t subscript 2 equals 0.8..... left parenthesis 2 right parenthesis
solve space 1 space & space 2 space to space get space straight t subscript 1 comma straight t subscript 2
and space then space straight d subscript 1 comma straight d subscript 2 space space space space space space space end style
