Homework Help: Math (Word Problems)

Posted by Dani on Sunday, November 30, 2008 at 12:02pm.

I need to know how to set up this problem:
A salesman drives from Ajax to Barrington, a distance of 120 miles, at a steady speed. He then increases his speed by 10 mph to drive the 150 miles from Barrington to Collins. If the second leg of his trip took 6 minutes more time than the first leg, how fast was he driving between Ajax and Barrington?
