driving along a crowded freeway you notice that it takes a time to go from one mile marker to the next. when you increase your speed by 8.4 mi/hr the time to go one mile decreased by 14 seconds. What was your original speed?

if your sped is s, and keeping everything in hours:
1/(s+8.4) = 1/s  14/3600
s = 42.465 mi/hr
