**drwls**, Monday, November 16, 2009 at 10:44amLet t be the time after the first jet leaves for LA, and x be the location of a plane, measured from LA.

2100 - x = 500 t

x = 700 (t -1) = 700 t - 700

Substitute 2100 - 500 t for x in the second equation and solve for t.

2100 - 500 t = 700 t - 700

2800 = 1200 t

t = 7/3 hours = 2 hours & 20 minutes
