What is the Distance in Meeting for first time for opposite direction?

I able to calculate this 2 things:

relative speed of A and B = 3 + 1; 4m/sec

Time for meeting for first time in opposite direction = 100/(3+1); 25 sec

I can't able to find distance in Meeting for first time for opposite direction.

Distance = time * speed

The total distance they travel is 100m, the ratio of their speeds then gives B travels 25m while A travels 75m.
