Waves problem

The velocity of the transverse waves produced by an earthquake is \(8.9 \text{ km s}^{-1}\), and that of the longitudinal waves is \(5.1 \text{ km s}^{-1}\). A seismograph records the arrival of the transverse waves 68 seconds before the arrival of the longitudinal waves. How far is the earthquake? (in km)
