Starting at the same point, Tom and Juanita go biking in opposite directions. If Tom rides at a speed of 16 mph, and Juanita rides at a speed of 18 mph, how far apart will they be in 2 hours?
Can i please have an explanation?
omfg i just typed this long explination and deleted it
so heres the sort, the answer is 68 miles appart
imagine they are on a number line starting at 0 one goes positiv eone goes negitve
how many digits appart are they?
at 0 hours they are both at 0
at 1 hour one is at 18 (Miles) and one is at 16
so at 2 hours how far would they be?
if one moves at 18 per hour and 2 hours have past then 18x2 i s 36
for the other 16 pases every hour, for two hours whatis it? 16x2 wich is 32
both of them apart from 0 is
(16x2)+(18x2)+ 68 so there
