Lily and William are both driving along the same highway in two different cars to a stadium in a distant city. At noon, Lily is 313 miles away from the stadium and William is 334 miles away from the stadium. Lily is driving along the highway at a speed of 44 miles per hour and William is driving at speed of 51 miles per hour. Let L represent Lily's distance, in miles, away from the stadium t hours after noon. Let W represent William's distance, in miles, away from the stadium t hours after noon. Write an equation for each situation, in terms of t, and determine the interval of hours, t, for which Lily is closer to the stadium than William.
