**drwls**, Sunday, January 25, 2009 at 11:15pmVj = 0.8 Vm

Josh rides for time t at speed Vj

Mike rides for time t/2 at speed Vm

Vm*t/2 + Vj*t = 13

Vm*t/2 + 0.8 Vm*t = 13

1.3 Vm t = 13

Vm t = 10

The distance Mike travelled is

(1/2) Vm t = 5 miles

You cannot solve for Vm and t separately, but you don't have to to get the answer.
