two cars leave from the same place and travel in opposite directions. one car travels 30 mph fgaster than the other. after 2.5 hours, they are 265 miles apart. what are the rates of the two cars?
ive tried but i cant seem to come up with an equation. once i have the equation, i will be able to figure it out. ive always had a hard time interpreting word problems. any help at all is appreciated.
