Post a New Question

Posted by on .

Gabe lives fifteen miles from school and the bus stops seven times at three minutes each between his house and school. The bus arrives at his house at 7:30. Gabe's friend Aaron lives 8 miles from school and the bus stops four times at 2 minutes each between his house and school. The bus arrives at his house at 8:00. What time does each boy arrive at school?


Can someone please help? I have no idea how to turn this into an equation; it seems so long and confusing.

  • Algebra - ,

    |TimeGabe= leaving time + stopping time

    Time Aaron= leaving time + stopping time.

    I still don't get it! My brain is burnt right now.

  • Algebra - ,

    TimeGabe=leaving time + stopping time
    7:51=7:30 + 21(7x3)
    Gabe arrives @ 7:51, right?
    Then for Aaron:
    Time Aaron=leaving time + stopping time
    same thing:
    8:08=8:00 + 8(4x2)
    So Aaron gets there @ 8:08.
