Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let t = time in mins, d = distance b/w two places use time = distance/speed eqn 1: t = d/64 eqn 2: t10=d/78 solve the linear system for d

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0o.o why not? there's a formula for speed. (Speed = Distance/time). We just rearrange it for time = distance/speed

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry hehe I'm in class right now... the first 64km/h shows the speed so we got eqn 1 the 78km/h becomes eqn 2 but the time t must be 10mins less

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you would divide the distance by the speed ? what would you get as an answer ? im confusedd ..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, what grade is this? I used the linear system method to solve this. If you haven't learn it yet, then obviously you couldn't do it this way.
