Can you please provide me with the process of answering this question without using formal algebra? My child is struggling with this problem and I cannot seem to explain without using formal algebra. Thanks
Question:
Two snails are 8.5 feet apart. They start to crawl toward each other at the same time. One of them travels at the speed of 6 in. per minute, while the other zips along at 11 inches per minute. How long will it be before the two snails meet?
