Two Particles On A Collision Course


A and B are two points on a straight line. How far apart they are, depends of how this question requires them to be. Two particles C and D starting from points A and B respectively are on collision course. The velocity of each of the particles is the same. It is 75% the speed of light. What is the relative velocity of one particle with respect to the other? Incidentally the speed of light is 186284 miles per second.
