12. Towns P and Q are 100km apart. A pick-up starts from town P at 5.00am at a steady speed of 30km/h for 1 hour. It increases its speed to 100km/h until it reaches town Q. At 5.30am, a taxi starts from town Q towards P at a steady speed of 60km/h until it breaks down1 1⁄2 hours later.

a) On the same axes, draw distance – time graphs for the pick-up and the taxi.
     (Use scale 2cm : 30 minutes on the horizontal axis and 2cm : 10km on the vertical axis)

b) Use your graphs to find
