Any thoughts on this problem. I have thought about solving it by finding 2/5 of hour traveled in distance. Then I'm a bit confused on what's next. I've figured to have both proportions equal to one another but the fractions seem to be throwing me off.

Makayla and Tomeisha walk from their apartments to meet for lunch. They live the same distance from the restaurant where they will meet. Makayla walks at a constant speed and she travels 24 blocks in 2/5 of an hour. Tomeisha's constant speed is represented by the equation 3/4y = 30x, where y represents her distance, in blocks, and x represents her time, in hours.

Who will get to the restaurant later? Explain how you know.
