I got 3 hours as my answer, but I dont think that's right...

**Kate**, Wednesday, January 2, 2013 at 5:38pmNever minds. I see my mistake. It's really 6 hours.

**Reiny**, Wednesday, January 2, 2013 at 5:41pmYou could easily check your answer.

first truck went 3(70) or 210 km

2nd truck went 3(80) = 240 km

nope, that does not add up to 900, so

let the time be t hours

70t + 80t = 900

150t = 900

t = 6

I will leave it up to you to check my answer.

**Kate**, Wednesday, January 2, 2013 at 5:42pmthanks. I though because you added 70t and 80t there would be 2ts. But no.
