I'm not really sure how to answer speed time and distance problems. Can someone help me with the question in the description below?

Train A and Train B are traveling between City 1 and City 2 in opposite directions. Train A left City 1 towards City 2 at 9:00 a.m, traveling at an average speed of 70 mph. Train B left City 2, 1 hour later, traveling at an average speed of 60 mph. The distance between the two cities is 250 miles. What time do the trains cross each other? And how far away from City 2 did they cross each other?
