2. Two friends live 15 miles apart. One day they decide to jog and meet each other. Tanya leaves her house and heads east, jogging at a rate of 2.5 miles per hour. At the same time Kelly leaves her house and heads west, jogging at a rate of 3.5 miles per hour. How long does it take for the two friends to meet?

Please help me out with these word problems. Thanks a lot!

  • Math [urgent] -

    1. First number = x, second number = 12x - 3, and if the third number is being compared to the first, it = 7x + 4. The sum of these = 301. Solve for x.

    2. 15 = 2.5x + 3.5x
    Solve for x.

    I hope this helps. Thanks for asking.
