# Journey

The road from A to B measures 11.5 km. Firstly up the hill, then by level plane and then downhill. Tourist goes uphill at 3 km/h, on the plane 4 km/h and downhill 5 km/h. From point A to B went 2h 54 min back 3h 6 min. How long is the segment of level plane?

Result

y =  3 km

#### Solution:

x+y+z=11.5
x/3+y/4+z/5 = 2+54/60
x/5+y/4+z/3 = 3+6/60

x+y+z = 11.5
20x+15y+12z = 174
12x+15y+20z = 186

x = 3
y = 4
z = 9/2 = 4.5
