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
