Just use d=rt. If you solve for t, you get d/r=t
You're given t and d, solve for r. 1 hour and 45 minutes is 7/4 hours.
Pat traveled 50 miles at a constant speed. He increased his speed by 20 mph and traveled 30 more miles. If his total travel time was 1 hour and 45 minutes, how fast was he traveling on each leg of his trip?
Could anyone help me with this? I have a quiz on this stuff tomorrow and I just don't get it.
Thanks in advance,
