Doing homework and came across this problem that has me totally stumped...

On Monday, Voltaire drove to town at 60 miles per hour. On Tuesday, he drove to town at 40 miles per hour. If the total traveling time for both trips was 15 hours, how far was it to town?

Use the formula distance = rate times time (d = r*t).

Unfortunately, I did that (15)(60)+(15)(40) and came up with 1500..which is way to big of a distance, any suggestions past this point?
