okay if you drive 3 miles in one minute, how many miles will you travel in 2 minutes?
okay good. how many miles would you travel in 3 minutes?
I get that I multiply but I think I am confused by the question. I got 66 miles but I guessnI am confused by the distance
distance is basically how much you travel in a certain time. so you travel a distance of 3 miles in one minute.
so how many miles would you cover in x minutes?
That is what I am confused by the only thing I can come up with is 33 miles is 66 minutes
I am sorry 99 minutes
99 minutes? or miles?
99 miles in 33 minutes
okay good. so what is the relationship between M and x?
3 miles --> 1 minute M miles---> x minutes what is the relation between M and x?
Ireally don't know
okay. in one minute you travel (3 times 1) miles. in two minutes you travel (3 times 2) miles in three minutes you travel (3 times 3) miles in x minutes you travel (3 times x) miles. so number of miles (M) traveled in x minutes is 3x therefore M = 3x miles, where x is in minutes.
ok now I am really confused. S 3x=99 miles is that it
the formula is M = 3x the distance traveled in 33 minutes is M = 3 times 33 = 99 miles
I think I understand thanks
you are welcome. dont get confused by letters such as M and x and so on. It is painful to write you travel 3 times the number of minutes in that time. so we assign variables such as M and x to the distance and time and write it in mathematical form. it is much easier to write M =3x as long as you know what M and x stand for.
