w- walking j- jogging

2w + .5j= 6.25 --> 3(2w+.5j)= 3(6.25)

3w + 1j= 10.25 --> -2(3w+1j)= -2(10.25

6w + 1.5j= 18.75

-6w - 2j= -20.50

-----------------

-.5j=-1.75

j=.3

2w + .5(.3)= 6.25

2w + 15= 6.25

2w= 6.10 w= 3.05

check:

2(3.05) + .5(.3)= 6.25 (correct)

3(3.05) + 1(.3)= 9.45(wrong!!) it should be 10.25.

**bobpursley**, Thursday, October 15, 2009 at 1:30pmJordan, this is pretty basic.

.5 j= 1.75

divide both sides by .5

j= 1.75/.5

**jordan**, Thursday, October 15, 2009 at 1:32pmBut, if i did get 3.5 that would mess up getting 6.25 or 10.25.

2(3.05) + .5(.3)= 6.25--correct.

3(3.05) + 1(.3)= 9.45... this is the one where i went wrong. i went wrong.

**bobpursley**, Thursday, October 15, 2009 at 1:36pmYou have a lot of problems. YOu solved j as 3.5 so now solve for w, you first answer is WRONG.

2w + .5(3.5)= 6.25 solve for w.
