Homework Help: Math

Posted by Yuck Fou! on Monday, November 6, 2006 at 8:11pm.

Please help me!
Two cars leave town going opposite directions. One car is traveling 55 mph, and the other is traveling 65 mph How long will it take before they are 180 miles apart?

Hint: The time for both cars is the same and can be represented by "t." The total distance is 180 miles. The distance = (rate)(time). If you add the (rate)(time) of the first vehicle to the (rate)(time) of the second vehicle, that will equal the total distance of 180 miles. Since you only have one unknown (t), you only need one equation.

Hey what the heck is your problem? Young kids use this site! I am pretty sure that your parents would not be too happy with this screen name. If they do like it then they are sick.
Thank you.
