At 2:00 p.m. two cars start toward each other from towns 240 miles apart. If the rate of one car is 10 mph faster than the other, how fast does each car go if they meet at 5:00 p.m? and If 3x represents the distance that the slower car traveled, then which expression represents the distance the faster car traveled?
B) 3x + 10
C) 3x + 30
They travel for 3 hours.....and the total distance covered = 240 miles
Let x be the rate of the slower car and x + 10 be the rate of the faster
And R*T = D so
3(x) + 3(x + 10) = 240
3x + (3x + 30) = 240
