d = 9 * 10^7 meters time = distance/speed = 9 * 10^7 meters/ 1.5 * 10^8 m/s = 6 * 10^-1 = 0.6 seconds That sounds like very little but if you are looking at high frequency radio signals, that can be a huge difference in phase between the wave coming to you and the wave ...

the total passing speed is 180 km/hr the distance is 600 m = 0.6 km so t = d/s = .6 /180 = 1/300 hour (1 hr/300) * 3600 s /hr = 12 seconds

They want minutes so do it all in minutes 4 seconds = 4/60 = 1/15 minute half hour = 30 minutes 30 = 4 + (1/15) t 26 * 15 = t t = 390 minutes (which is 6.5 hours)

A = 1/8 job/day B = 1/4 job/day A + B = 3/8 job /day which is 8/3 days per job (8 days/3 jobs) 10 Hours/day = 80/3 hours/job = 26 2/3 hours

A * 1.2 = B A * 1.2 * 1.1 = C = 6600 so A = 6600/(1.2*1.1)

It tells you to use substitution and you already have y, all alone on the left. It is (-3x+6) so use that. substitute it for x i the other (first) equation 4 x + 2(-3x+6) = 10 4 x - 6 x + 12 = 10 2 x = 2 x = 1 y = -3(1) + 6 = 3
