When they meet, it is found that one train has traveled 60 km more than the other . The distance between two stations is?

A. 440 km

B. 444 km

C. 445 km

D. 450 km

\eqalign{ & {\text{At the time of meeting ,}} \cr & {\text{let the distance travelled by the}} \cr & {\text{first train be }}x{\text{ km}}{\text{.}} \cr & {\text{Then distance travelled by the }} \cr & {\text{second train is (}}x{\text{ + 60) km}} \cr & \therefore \frac{x}{{16}} = \frac{{x + 60}}{{21}} \cr & \Rightarrow 21x = 16x + 960 \cr & \Rightarrow 5x = 960 \Rightarrow x = 192 \cr & {\text{Hence,}} \cr & {\text{distance between two stations}} \cr & {\text{ = (192 + 192 + 60) km}} \cr & {\text{ = 444 km}}{\text{.}} \cr}
