Storm

So far, a storm has traveled 35 miles in 1/2 hour in direction straight to observer. If it is currently 5:00 p. M. And the storm is 105 miles away from you, at what time will the storm reach you? Explain how you solved the problem.

Result

t = 6:30 hh:mm Wrong answer

Solution:

s1=35 mi t1=1/2=12=0.5 h  v=s1/t1=35/0.5=70 mi/h  s=105 mi t=5.00+s/v=5.00+105/70=132=6.5=6:30 hh:mms_{1}=35 \ \text{mi} \ \\ t_{1}=1/2=\dfrac{ 1 }{ 2 }=0.5 \ \text{h} \ \\ \ \\ v=s_{1} / t_{1}=35 / 0.5=70 \ \text{mi/h} \ \\ \ \\ s=105 \ \text{mi} \ \\ t=5.00 + s/v=5.00 + 105/70=\dfrac{ 13 }{ 2 }=6.5=6:30 \ \text{hh}:\text{mm}



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
