    Speed of the slower truck is x and distance in 6 hours is 6x

    Speed of the faster truck is 2x and distance in 6 hours is 12x

    12x-6x=204

    6x=204

    x=34

    The slower truck is traveling at 34 mph for 204 miles in 6 hours

    The faster truck is traveling twice at 68 mph for 408 miles in 6 hours

    The difference of this two miles is 204 miles
