Let's stop Jack's elevator at the 25th floor and add its speed to Jill's elevator ==> 56 + 64 = 120 floors/min.
Now Jill will travel 70 - 25 floors = 45 floors @ 120 floors/min to reach Jack.
ie., 45 × 60/120 = 22.5 seconds is how long it will take for them to reach the same level {(25 + (56×22.5/60)) = 46th floor}.
