From A to B (Posted on 2002-05-15) Difficulty: 5 of 5
A car drives downhill with the speed of 90 m/h. On a level road, the same car goes 72 m/h, and uphill it goes "only" 60 m/h.

It takes this car 5 hours to go from town A to town B. The return trip only takes 4 hours.

Find the distance between the two towns.
