    Please help me!

    John and William leave their home traveling in opposite directions on a straight road. John drives 20 miles per hour faster than William. After 4 hours they are 250 miles apart.
    a. Define a variable for John's rate. Write an expression for William's rate.
    b. Write and solve an equation to find John's rate. Then find William's rate.
