in a bike race, ramit and keith started at the same time abd rode with constant speeds. Ramit rode 30 miles per hour, and keith rode at 35 miles per hour. If ramit crossed the finish line 10 minutes after keith, how many miles long was the race?

math 
Damon,
10 min = 1/6 hr
distance = rate * time
30 t = 35 (t1/6)
30 t = 35 t  35/6
35/6 = 5 t
t = 7/6 hr
d = 30 t = 30*7/6 = 5*7 = 35 miles
