1. Create a table to record the highway distance from San Antonio for 0-5 hours in one-hour intervals.

2. Graph the information in your table. Put time on the x-axis.3. What do the y-intercepts on your graph mean?

4. Where do the cars pass each other?

5. Which vehicle reaches its’ destination first?

**Reiny**, Sunday, November 13, 2011 at 9:10pmI will assume you meant to state that they left at the same time.

Let the distance covered by the southbound be x

let the distance covered by the northbound be 272-x

time for southbound = x/68

time for northbound = (272-x)/71

solve: x/68 = (272-x)/71

71x = 18496 - 68x

139x = 18496

x = 133.06

the southbound car went 133.06 , and the northbound went 138.94 miles when they met

time = 133.06/68 = 1.957 hrs

( check: 138.94/71 = 1.957 hrs )

Just follow the instructions for the remaining part of the question.
