A passenger train leaves a train depot 2 h after a freight train leaves the same depot.

The freight train is traveling 18 mph slower than the passenger train. Find the rate of each train if the passenger train overtakes the freight train in 3 h.

Is the three hours after the passenger train leaves the depot, or the freight train leaves?
