2.Two cars leave Kansas City at the same time.
One car is moving east and the other west.
After 5 hours, the cars are 575 miles apart.
One car is traveling 15 miles per hour faster than the other.
Let S = the speed of the slower car and F = the speed of the faster car.
If one equation for this system is 5F + 5S = 575, what is the other? Type your answer without spaces.


~The other would be S=F+10 right? If im not right please show me how to do it
