Corinne and Aretha are having a 26-mile race. Corinne gave Aretha a head start by letting her begin 3.5 miles in front of the start line. Their distances past the start line as the race has progressed can be represented by linear functions and are shown in the table and graph below. How many minutes after the start of the race will Corinne catch Aretha?

Corinne’s Distance Past the Start Line
May you clarify a bit ?
Time (minutes) for corinee
225 minutes for who ?

So first thing is to draw up a graph
where is Aretha's values?
With respect, I dont know Aretha's times. You state in the question these are given, but you have only shown corrie's so far.
graph both lines and find the intersection of the two lines
It's simple as that. Enter the values with certain intervals and wherever one intersects the other is where the first starter is being passed by the second
alright Idk how this openstudy wrk but I just want the answrs and give out medals
@mariemetayer96 there is so much we can do with the data we are given. If we are not given all the values we cant complete the question. As @Robert136 has suggested, you need to graph both of the girls distances, I could graph the first one, becuase you gave me the values for Corrie, but you didnt give me the values for Aretha. So, without the values, it is not possible to draw the second linear function.
Okay, so you can see where the two graphs intersect now. at approximately (110,14) which means that Corrie will catch Aretha after approx 100 minutes.(since they both start at 10 minutes and meet each other at 110)
