Two cyclists start biking from a trail's start 3 hours apart. The second cyclist travels at 10 miles per hour and starts 3 hours after the first cyclist who is traveling at 6 miles per hour. How much time will pass before the second cyclist catches up with the first from the time the second cyclist started biking?

I remember doing columns for time, rate, and distance in school but I'm having some difficulty both setting it up and figuring out where to go from there.

R: 6

Cyclist 2

I'm not sure what to do with the 3 hours. Would it be the time for the first cyclist, and then the distance would be 18? And if it is, where do I go from there?

Any help is much appreciated. I know it probably seems stupid, but it's amazing what you forget if you don't put it to use for so long.

I'd like to note that I have looked up similar problems and tutorials on solving them, but they weren't very helpful. Like most people I'm a visual learner, so if you provide links to other places it would be most appreciated if they weren't just sample equations thrown on a page.

Thank you in advance, it means a lot!
