I need help on a math problem. It is:
Thank you if you can help, Hi Jennie,
You are measuring two quantities, time and distance and the trip is divided into three segments. The first segment is the first 50 miles, the second segment is the next 130 miles and the last segment is an unknown distance. I see this as a diagram In the first segment you travel 50 miles in an unknown time and in the last segment you drive for an hour and a half for an unknown distance. In the center segment however, you know both the time and distance, you travel 130 miles in 3 hours. Thus your speed is ^{130}/_{3} miles per hour. At that speed how far do you go in the last hour and a half, from noon until 1:30. Cheers,Penny
