A train heads strait east at constant speed at 9 am. At noon, a car heads strait east at twice the speed of the train. What time will it be when the car catches up to the train? (We know d=rt, when the two meet, they've gone the same distance. Also, the train travels 3 hours longer than the car since it leaves earlier).
