Hello I currently am stumped on a word problem that appeared on my homework, it is as follows...
"Driving from Dallas towards Memphis, JoJo averages 50mph. She figured that if she had averaged 60mph the driving time would have decreased by 3 hours. How far did she drive?"
I thought this would have been a simple D=R/T problem.. but somewhere I am not plugging the variables in correctly.. or setting the problem up the correct way. Please help.. this assignment is due in a few hours. Thanks!
I'm drawing a huge blank on how to make the two work together in one equation. The instructions note that I should set up and write a "rational equation", then solve AND answer the problem.
Unless I'm missing something.. I'm unsure of how I should incorporate the two to solve them.
