A SHIP TRAVELS FROM NEW YORK TO SOUTHAMPTON ENGLAND AT 33 MILES PER HOUR. A PLANE TRAVELING 605 MILES PER HOUR TAKES 104 HOURS LESS TIME TO MAKE THE SAME TRIP. HOW FAR APART ARE THE TWO CITIES?

**Reiny**, Tuesday, September 30, 2008 at 8:46pmlet the time taken for the ship be t hours

then the time taken by the plane is t-104 hours

so 605(t-104) = 33t

solve for t, then evaluate 33t
