Solving for the other unknowns:
= Time Taken by Faster Plane (in hours)
= 4 hours
= Time Taken by Slower Plane (in hours)
= 6 hours
Distance Traveled = 2100 miles
Time Taken by Faster Plane = 4 hours
Time Taken by Slower Plane = 6 hours
The faster plane takes 2 hours less to complete the trip than the
6 hours - 2 hours = 4 hours
Thus, the answer checks.
It takes a man 4 hours to reach a destination 1325 miles from his home. He
drives to the airport at an average speed of 50 miles per hour, and the average
speed of his plane trip is 500 miles per hour. How far does he travel by each
mode of transportation?
Let x = Distance Traveled by Car (in miles)
