Okay, so I know how do usually do these types of problems but I have no idea how to approach this one, could anyone please help me out?

Vectorville and Scarlartown are 20.0km apart. A cyclist leaves Vectorville and heads for Scarlartown at 20km/h. A second cyclist leaves Scarlartown for Vectorville at the exact same time at a speed of 15km/h. A) Where will the two cyclists meet? How much time passes before they meet?

Just if someone could let me know how to start the problem, that would be fantastic. I think I could figure it out if I just knew where to start. Thanks so much!!
