Can you write each expression as a linear relationship? (Hint: each variable corresponds to the distance of a particular section of the trip)
On your next trip to Switzerland, you should take the scenic boat ride from Rheinfall to Rheinau and back. The trip downstream from Rheinfall to Rheinau takes 20 minutes, and the return trip takes 40 minutes; the distance between Rheinfall and Rheinau along the river is 8 kilometers. How fast does the boat travel (relative to the water), and how fast does the river Rhein flow in this area? You may assumes both speeds to be constant throughout the journey.
I have no idea how to even start this or put it into a matrix.
