Let d be the distance between location-A and location-B.

If car travels from A towards B with speed vA and another car travels from B towards A with speed vB, then we have

(9/7) vA + (9/7) vB = d  ............................(1)

If car travels from A towards B with speed vA and another car travels from B in same direction with speed vB,

then we have ,    9 vA  - 9 vB = d  ............................(2)

By equating, (1) and (2), we have,  vA + vB = 7 (  vA  -  vB )   or   6 vA  = 8 vor  vA  = (4/3)vB

hence the ratio of speeds of cars staring from A and B is 4 : 3
