The distances (y), in miles, of two cars from their starting points at certain times (x), in hours, are shown by the equations below: Car A y = 55x + 32 Car B y = 42x + 58 After how many hours will the two cars be at the same distance from their starting point and what will that distance be?

    it wants to know when theyll be the same distance so one way to solve is to plug in numbers for x until u get them to equal each other

    also since x=time in hours once u find the lowest number that works for x that will be hours and the total will be distance
