Pete and jan compete as a team in a biathlon. Pete runs at a speed of 9 km/ h for x hours. Jan cycles at twice Pete's running speed for 1 hour and 30 minutes. The total distance of the biathlon is 42 km. Find, in hour and minutes, Pete's running time.

  • Math -

    Distance = Rate * Time or D = RT

    for Pete : D = 9x
    for Jan : D = 18(1.5)

    so 9x + 18(1.5) = 42

    solve for x

    (I got 1 hour, 40 minutes)
