Algebra 1

I'm having a hard time understanding distance rate and time word problems, and my teacher doesn't really make things clear. I don't ask questions, because I'm busy trying to keep up with writing notes. Can someone possibly give me an example on a distance rate time question and show how to do it?

  1. Why don't you post one or more of the problems you have and indicate where you are having trouble.

    I would also suggest asking for special help from that teacher or a tutor. You could even get together with a classmate who understands these problems.
