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
