**Henry**, Wednesday, June 29, 2011 at 10:18pm68mi @ (X+5)mi/h.

16mi @ xmi/h.

t = 68 / (X+5) + 16 / X = 3h,

LCM = X(X+5):

(68X + 16(X+5)) / X(X+5) = 3,

(84X + 80) / X(X+5) = 3,

Multiply both sides by X(X+5):

84X + 80 = 3X(x+5),

84X + 80 = 3X^2 + 15X,

3X^2 + 15X - 84X - 80 = 0,

3X^2 - 69X - 80 = 0.

Solve for X using the Quad. Formula and

get:

X = 24.1062, and - 1.1062.

Select the + value of X:

X = 24.1062mi/h.

X+5 = 29.1062mi/h.
