Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0d= rt 200m = 8 min ( Kevin Current) Kevin  current = 25m/min 200m = 4 min (Kevin + current) Kevin + current = 50 Now you add subtract Kevin  current from Kevin + current to get... Kevin + current  (Kevin  current) = 50m/min  25m/min 2 current = 25m/min current = 12.5m/min Now we plug current in and solve Kevin + 12.5m/min = 50 Kevin = 37.5m/min Hope that helps
