Is this correct:

380(x-10)=420(x+10)

380x-3800=420x+4200

-420x -420x

-40x-3800=4200

+3800 +3800

-40x=8000

-40x/-40=8000/-40

x=200

is 200 miles the answer?

380(x+10)=420(x-10)

**Damon**, Tuesday, March 22, 2011 at 2:29pmt (v-10) = 380

t(v+10) = 420

380/(v-10) = 420/(v+10)

so I get

380(v+10) = 420(v-10) yes agree

40 v = 8000

v = 200 miles/hour
