  Whenever two bodies are travelling in the opposite directions, the distance between them is to be divided by the sum of their speeds. If they move in the same direction, the distance is to be divided by the difference of their speeds. This gives the time required for meeting of the bodies or the time elapsed after meeting of the moving bodies.   SREEDHARACHARYA PATIGANITHA 990 AD
