Re: Linear Algebra Problem

Hey Preston019.

Can you write each expression as a linear relationship? (Hint: each variable corresponds to the distance of a particular section of the trip)

Re: Linear Algebra Problem

So would it be x+y=8/20 and x-y=8/40 then?

That's meaningless until you say what "x" and "y" mean in this problem. chiro said "Hint: each variable corresponds to the distance of a particular section of the trip" but you are the one assigning meaning to variables.

Re: Linear Algebra Problem

I'm still not understanding this very well.

Would you set it up as 20x+40y=16 then?

Are there any other hints?
