(x+4)\[\frac{ 120 }{ x+4 }=\frac{ 120 }{ x }+1\] x is the rate at which B is travelling (ie. xkm/h)
There SOLVE FOR x
Wait it's incorrect for some reason. I made a mistake.

Tried solving it, but nothing came out.
120/(x+4) =120/x +1 120/(x+4) =(120+x)/x 120x =(120+x)(x+4) 120x =120x +480 +x^2 +4x x^2 +4x +480 =0
That's the problem.
which has NO real SOLUTION
It is should be 120/(x+4) =120/x -1
Beacuse A takes 1 hour less than B

U need to solve it
Yeah. A bit of confusion but we got there.
x is a imaginary number.
No. Read suarav's post.
it's not +1 it's -1
-2 + 21.82i or -2-21.82i
\[\frac{ 120 }{ x+4 }=\frac{ 120 }{ x }-1\]
I previously wrote +1
instead of -1
oh really sorry, I have a mistake. x=24.
That's incorrect still. Try again.
really?? . so, x=20, right??? Don't tell me it's still incorect ..:(
Correct. Well done.
