Mark and Sandy are participating in a Bike-a-Thon for charity. Mark oversleeps, so Sandy gets a one hour head start and bikes at a speed of 12 miles per hour. To catch up to Sandy, Mark decides that he needs to bike at a speed of 15 miles per hour.

1. Make a chart that shows how far Mark and SAndy ride their bikes during the first three hours of the Bike a thon

Hour 1: Mark 15mph Sandy 12mph

Hour 2: Mark 30mph Sandy 24mph

Hour 3: Mark 45mph Sandy 36mph

You missed the fact that Sandy had a one hour head start.

At the end of:

Hour 1: Sandy -- 12 m; Mark 0

Hour 2: Sandy -- 24 m; Mark 15

Hour 3: Sandy -- 26 m; Mark 30

Thank you.

2. WRite an expression that represents Sandy's journey. Be sure to define your variables

t=hour

12t + 12

But didn't she have a one hour head start so she would have had an extra 12 m?

You just need an expression that represents her journey. It doesn't make any difference what time she started.
