two trains leave at the same time from two different stations 284 miles apart, traveling toward each other at 33 mph and 38 mph respectively. how long will it take for them to meet?

33x + 38x = 284
Solve for x.

THIS IS EASY MAN
33X+38X=284 ADD VARIABLES "X"
71X=284 SIMPLIFY
X=284/71 SIMPLE DIVISION
X=4
CHECK YOURS ANSWER. IS THIS CORRECT FOR X? ASK YOURSELF
ORIGINAL EQUATION IS 33X+38X=284
PUT THE VALE OF X=4 IN THE EQUATION
33(4)+38(4)=284
132+152=284
284=284
HENCE PROVED THAT L.H.S= R.H.S

33x+38x=284
71x=284
71x/71=284/71
x=284/71
x=4
