Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are two distances and two speeds, but the two distances add up to 1000mi. and the time for both is the same.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0320×time + 280×time = 1000.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to find the time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"320+280=1000" would be 'speed + speed = distance' which doesn't make sense.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so speed + speed = distance means that it equals 600?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Speed + speed = distance is nonsensical and cannot be used. There are two distances that add up to 1000, so you need distance1 + distance2 = total distance. distance1=speed1×time, distance2=speed2×time. The only unknown here is the amount of time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It does reduce to an equation that looks like a single speed of 600mph, and a single time of ? for a single total distance of 1000mi.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Go back through everything I wrote a little at a time and think about it. I'm sure you'll figure it out.
