Let t be the unknown amount of time for them to meet. After this time, the total distance traveled by truck A is 45t. At the same time, the total distance traveled by truck B is 60t. The sum of these distances should be 360.                                        45t + 60t = 360 The value of t from the equation is approximately 3.43 hours.
