The distance between two towns P and Q is 480 km. At 10.28 a.m a bus left town P and travelled towards town Q at an average speed of s km/h. A car left town Q at the same time and travelled towards town P along the same road. The two vehicles met at 1.40 p.m. Given that on average the car travelled 30 km/h faster than the bus, determine the value of s and hence state the speed of the car.
