They would be 44.6 miles apart

Step-by-step explanation:

Here, we want to calculate how far they will be in 1 hour

Mathematically;

Distance = speed * time

In 1 hour, Kiran would have traveled a distance of 3 * 1 = 3 miles

While Clare would have traveled a distance of 3.4 * 1 = 3.4 miles

Now, we want to calculate how far apart they would be

On the 24 miles trail, Kiran would be at a distance of 21 miles to the other end

On the 24 miles Claire would be at a distance of 20.6 miles

So how far apart they would be is

24 miles + 20.6 miles = 44.6 miles
