    1. Let r denote the distance XA and s the distance BY. Use the definition of speed: speed = \frac{distance}{time}~\implies~ time = \frac{distance}{speed}

    2. You can extract a system of simultaneous equations from the text:

    \frac r4 = \frac{s+120}6~\wedge~\frac{r+120}6=\frac s4

    Solve for r and s.
