Two towns are 1200 miles apart. A group of hikers starts from each town and walks down the trail toward each other. They meet after a total hiking time of 220 hours. If one group travels 1 1/2 miles per hour slower than the other group, find the rate of each group.(slower group in fraction form and slower group in fraction form)

1200 / ( x + x + 1 1/2 )   = 220 hrs

(1200/220   - 1.5 )/2 = x = 1.977  m/hr    and     3.477 m/hr

 

87/44  m/hr   for the slower group      153/44 for the faster   m/hr
