Homework Help: Math

Posted by Elizabeth on Monday, December 10, 2012 at 10:16am.

A motorist makes a journey of 240 km from Singapore to Malacca to visit his inlaws at an average speed of x kilometers.

On his return journey, his average speed is reduced by 6km/hour due to traffic.

If the return journey takes 20 minutes longer, form an equation with x and solve it to find the average speed of each journey, giving your answer correct to two decimal places.

So: 240/x is the number of hours taken for the first journey.

240/x-6 is the time it takes for the return journey.

What do I do next? Please help!
