Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let x = carlos's speed jodie: x + 7 x * t = 57 (x + 7) * t = 78 solve for t and equate t = 57/x t = 78 / (x + 7) \[\frac{57}{x} = \frac{78}{x + 7}\] 57(x + 7) = 78x 57x + 399 = 78x 21x = 399 x = 19 carlos bikes at 19 km/hr jodie bikes at 26 km/hr
