    Distance between the two stations from where the two trains leave = 182 miles

    Speed of one train (S1) = 55 miles/hour

    Speed of the other train = 75 miles/hour

    Now

    Time taken by the two trains to meet = Distance / (S1 + S2)

    = 182 / (55 + 75)

    = 182/130

    = 1.4 hours

    From the above deduction, it can be concluded that the two trains will meet each other after 1.4 hours. I hope that the procedure is simple enough for you to understand.
