Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(speed = \dfrac{distance}{time} \) \(time = \dfrac{distance}{speed} \) \(\dfrac{60}{x} + \dfrac{45}{x + 4} = 6\) \(\dfrac{60}{x}\times \dfrac{x+4}{x+4} + \dfrac{45}{x + 4} \times \dfrac{x}{x}= 6\) \(\dfrac{60(x + 4) + 45x}{(x + 4)x} = 6\) \(60x + 240 + 45x = 6x^2 + 24x\) \(6x^2  81x  240 = 0\) \(2x^2  27x  80 = 0\)
