The Rath Family drove to the beach at 85 kmph. They returned by a different route at 70 kmph. Each trip took the same time, but the return trip was 30 km shorter. How long did each trip take?

idk... would the formula be

 

   85x=70(x-30)?

D/85 =[D-30]/70, solve for D

 

D=170km - outgoing distance to the beach

170-30 =140 km-return distance

170/85 =2 hours - time taken to get to the beach.

[170 - 30] / 70 =2 hours - return time.
