I need help with this question Ellen and Kate raced on their bikes to the library after school. They both left school at 3:00pm. and bicycled along the same path and Ellen rode at a speed of 12 miles per hour and Kate rode at a speed of 9 hours per hour. Ellen got to the library 15 minutes before Kate. What time did Ellen get to the library?

    d = v * t 12t = 9 ( t + 1/4 )

    Let t is the time in hour Ellen rode to the library -> t + 1/4 is the time Kate rode to the library Since the distance equal d1 = d2 <=> v1 t = v2 ( t + 1/4)
