TODAY’s Q: 

A car passes the toll booth near Portlaoise on the M8 heading for Cork at 115 km/h.

At the same time, 135km away, another car on the M8 passes through the toll near Watergrasshill travelling north at 110 km/h.

Assuming they maintain steady speeds how far apart will they be 36 minutes before they pass each other?
