Two cars raced at a race track. The faster car traveled 20 mph faster than the slower car. In the time that the slower car traveled 165 miles, the faster car traveled 225 miles. If the speeds of the cars remained constant, how fast did the slower car travel during the race?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'd go with 55, since I plugged it in for both formulas. 165 / 55 = 3, and for the second one, where the car traveled 20 mph faster, I did 225 / 75 which gave 3 as well. Both rates are the same (3) so I'd say 55 was how fast the car drove.
