for the following write an equation and solve it.

Terri and Nick rode their bikes toward each other starting from two towns 24 miles apart. Terri rode three miles per hour faster than Nick and they met in two hours. How fast did each person ride?

I think I need to use the formula d=rt

  • High School Math -

    terri speed=3+nickspeed

    terridistance+nickdistance=24
    terrispeed*2hrs + nickdistnace*2hrs=24mi
    (Nickspeed+3)*2hrs+nickdistance(2)=24
    solve for nickspeed first.
