A predator is 80 meters behind its prey, which is running away at a rate of 40 kilometers per hour. If the predator chases at 48 kilometers per hour and both animals run along a straight-line path at their respective constant rates, how long will it take, in seconds, for the predator to catch the prey? (1 kilometer = 1,000 meters)
Go to it! My answer will appear in the comments.
