    1) The distance between them increases at a rate of 99 mph. Divide 297 miles by that number.

    2) In this case, the distance between them increaes at a rate of 15 mph. Divide 69 miles by that number.

    But what are the equations for me to solve them?
    I need equations, that's what the directions are telling me.

  • Algebra - ,

    separation speed = 44 + 55 = 99
    99 t = 297

    in time t, fast one goes 47 t

    slow one goes 32 t
    so
    47 t - 32 t = 69
