Homework Help: algebra

Posted by Amal on Tuesday, June 8, 2010 at 4:08pm.

A man (we'll refer to him as man 1) starts from his home at 8 A.M. and drives a steady rate of 50 MPH. An hour later a second man ( man 2) starts to follow him. Draw a graph to represent these facts. From the graph find when man 2 overtakes man 1. Okay, I imagined at 9 A.M. man 1 has reached the 50 mile marker, and man two is "following" him. We don't know how far along he is or what time he departed. The distance he is behind him is X= x-50
and at 10 A.M. He will be 55+ x ahead. Please help me. My brain feels foggy.
