**Reiny**, Monday, July 5, 2010 at 9:34amOne of the best ways to do these is by using a "chart"

on the top: distance --- rate --- time

one the side: the two cases, in this problem: by car , walking

....... dist........rate....time

car ...48t ...... 48 ...... t

walk 6(1.5-t) .. 6 ..... (1.5-t)

So where does the equality come in ????

Ahhh, their distances are the same!

so solve

48t = 6(1.5-t)

( I get t = 1/6 and

distance = 48(1/6) = 8 )
