Dear Student

They will meet when sum of the distance covered by them is 232 km

suppose they meet after t hr of departure time at A

then travelling time of B will be t-3/4 hrs

DA=48t

DB=50(t-3/4)

DA +DB=  48t + 50(t-3/4)=232

solving we get t=11/4 hrs

distance from A= 48x11/4=132 km

 

All the best.
