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)

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
