A person leaves home at 8:00 a.m. and drives to a destination at a rate of 40 mph. The person returns at a rate of 25 mph and arrives at 2:30 p.m. If x represents how far it is to the destination, then which of the following expressions represents the amount of time to make the return trip?

It makes sense to include the possible expressions since there is more than one way of doing this.

For some reason I'm getting \(t = \frac{x}{25}  6.5\)

\[Rate = \frac{Distance}{Time}\] \[Time*Rate = Time*\frac{Distance}{Time}\] \[Time*Rate = Distance\] \[\frac{Time*Rate}{Rate} = \frac{Distance}{Rate}\] \[Time = \frac{Distance}{Rate}\]

Substitute Distance and Rate to get the Time.

Wired, do you have an actual explanation or are you going to continue to talk in general?

That IS the explanation. Replace Distance and Rate and you have the answer.

I see. I was focused too much on setting up the problem to solve for t

What is the Distance? What is the Rate for the trip home?

Since the total time: 12:30  8= 6.5 hrs > Return time : total  leaving time = ....

x/25 should be the answer. I am not sure I just went ahead and submitted my answers.

Chrorophyll, they wanted the expression for time

That what it is: Return time = total time  start time

@Chlorophyll Starting time is NOT X. As per the original statement: X represents how far it is to the destination.

"If x represents how far it is to the destination"

WiredBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Yes, I just stated that. X is DISTANCE, not TIME.

@mahmit2012 Yes, you solved for X, but the question didn't want X. @Chero Please close the thread and award a medal if you deem so.
