ALGEBRA

I need help with two problems to finish my assignment. #1 The length of a rectangle is fixed at 29cm. What widths will make the perimeter greater than 86 cm? If I could get the equation for this I would be able to figure it.
I saw this one posted and no response yet. #2 Trains A and B are traveling in the same direction. Train A is traveling at 100 mph and Train b is traveling at 110 mph. Train A passed a station at 1:15 pm and Train B passed the same station at 1:45pm. At what time will Train B catch up with Train A?

  • ALGEBRA -

    first one:
    let the width be w
    remember P = 2(l+w)
    so 2w + 58 > 86
    etc.

    for two:

    let the time from the moment that train B passed the station to the moment it passes train A be t hours.

    distance travelled by A since 1:45 pm is (50 + 100t)

    (Distance = rate x time, so the 50 is the distance A went from 1:15 to 1:45, which was 1/2 hour)

    distance traveled by B since 1:45 is 110t

    so 110t = 50 + 100t
    10t = 50
    t = 5

    so 5 hours from 1:45 pm or 6:45 pm
