It is 10 miles farther from town B to town C than it is from town C to town D. It is 330milesfrom town A to town D . how far is it from town A to town B?

    I think you have a typo and meant to say "One day we decided to dive from town A to town D" , or else why would you drive from A to B and then to C to get from A to B.
    I also assume that the town are along the same road.

    Let BC = x
    then AB = x+10
    CD = x-10

    x+10 + x + x-10 = 330
    3x = 330
    x =110

    AB = 120

    120
