For example if a train leaves one city at a rate of 50 miles an hour and another leaves from the second city at a rate of 40 miles an hour.

How many houses can two painters paint in two days?” (or “A chicken and an half can lay an egg and a half in a day and a half. How long will it take three chickens to lay three eggs?”)
