Monday Math: Today’s prize is backpack filled with goodiesPosted by MomOnMars on September 05, 2011
Welcome to Twyla’s Corner, where each Monday, I post a question from the Blue Filing Box of math problems. The first person with the correct answer wins. Today’s prize comes courtesy of San Antonio-based Kleenhanz® and includes a backpack filled with all kinds of ways to keep your kids hands clean and germ free. Kudos to Kleenhanz who donated 1,800 Travel Packs of their antimicrobial towelettes to the San Antonio Communities in Schools’ Stuff the Bus school supplies drive.

A car in San Antonio starts towards Austin at 40 miles per hour. Fifteen minutes later, a car in Austin starts toward San Antonio – 90 miles away – at 55 miles per hour. Which car is nearest San Antonio when they meet?
