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. (1 point)95.1s and 108.7s
10.2s and 101.9s108.7s and 10.2s95.1s and 10.2s

ok check this out bruh. this is what i first did. I subtracted 1.5 from both sides of this equation. 1.553t=0.1 and i got 1.4 then i divided 1.4/5.3 and i got 0.026415(etc) NEED HELP

I have t=0.026 and t=0.030 Does anyone else agree?

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.

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.
