Hello,
These are some SAT prep problems that I'm not sure about...
How long would a 1000 mile trip take if I was traveling at 50 mph for the first 500 miles and 60 mph for the rest of the trip?
A boat can reach its destination in 3 hours. If it goes twice as fast as it can reach 10 miles more than its destination, in 2 hours. How fast does it originally go?
A man can drive a certain distance in 5 hours. If he increased his speed by 10 mph, he could travel the same distance in 25/6 hours. What is the distance he travels?
Ah, that's far easier than how I originally tried it! Thanks!
For the second problem, I did:
D = RT
3R = (R)(3)
D + 10 = (2R)(2)
D = 4R - 10
Input (4R - 10) into the first equation to get: 3 = 4R - 10/R -> 3R = 4R - 10 -> 10 = R
For the third problem, how's this answer: 500/4 = 125, so his distance will be 125 more mph than before
