Two small planes start from the same point and fly in the opposite directions. The first plane is flying 35 mph slower than the second plane. In 2 hrs, the planes are 530 mi apart. Find the rate of the slow plane.

  • Math -

    separation speed = v + v + 35 =2v+35

    (2v+35)(2) = 530
    You should be able to take it from there.
