PLS HELP BEEN STUCK FOR HOURS ON THIS. Starting from 1.5 miles away, a car drives toward a speed checkpoint and then passes it. The car travels at a constant rate of 53 miles per hour. The distance of the car from the checkpoint is given by d = |1.5 – 53t|. At what times is the car 0.1 miles from the checkpoint? Calculate your answer in seconds.

    ok check this out bruh. this is what i first did. I subtracted 1.5 from both sides of this equation. 1.5-53t=0.1 and i got 1.4 then i divided 1.4/5.3 and i got 0.026415(etc) NEED HELP

    d = |1.5 – 53t| 0.1 = -(1.5 - 53t) 0.1 = 1.5 - 53t 0.1 =53t - 1.5 1.5 + 0.1 = 53t 1.6/53 = t t = 108.67 secs 53t = 1.5 - 0.1 53t = 1.4 t = 1.4/53 t = 95.09 secs

    Yeah, double checked I got it. You can solve this problem in 2 ways. 1st way by pure math abs( anything ) = something means anything =+something and/or anything =-something and solve for t also you can think of this as a physics problem with zero acceleration, deduce your position function and find the times at the desired distances.

    I wasn't being rude. I was trying to explain to you that it is inconvenient to help you in the messages.

    You didn't know, but I was explaining to you. That's all I can try to do is communicate with you and explain to you. All you have to do is not overreact.
