gregor is planning a driving trip where he knows that half his trip will be along major highways and part on country roads. The speed limit is 100km/h on highways and 60km/h on other roads. the total time he wants to spend driving is 12h. I set up the equation: 10h+6r=12, but I don't know how to solve for 3 more combinations of times gregor could spend driving on highways and country roads. please help

    He is going some distance, call it 2d
    then
    he goes 1d at 100 km/hr
    and
    he goes 1 d at 60 km/hr

    time = distance / speed
    so
    d/100 + d/60 = 12
    multiply both sides by 300
    3 d + 5 d = 3600
    8 d = 3600
    d = 450
    so
    2 d = 900 km, the distance he goes
