Default Could you solve this math problem using calculus?

The problem is-A car leaves San Fransisco heading towards Denver going at the constant speed of 50 miles per hour. Another car leaves Denver heading towards San Fransisco an hour later, but going at a constant speed of 60 miles per hour. When the two cars meet, which car is closer to Denver?Its a trick question in real life, but if you wanted to solve it, could you? If so, how?And by the way, you have to assume that they drive in a straight line, and that the problem doesn't give you the distance between the two cities.
