Let it Snow (Posted on 2003-06-05) Difficulty: 5 of 5
One morning it starts to snow at a constant rate. Later, at 6:00am, a snow plow sets out to clear a straight street. The plow can remove a fixed volume of snow per unit time.

If the plow covered twice as much distance in the first hour as the second hour, what time did it start snowing?
