Car driver

The car driver is in town A and is scheduled to be in town B at a specified hour. If it travels at an average speed of 50km/h, it will arrive in city B 30 minutes later. But if he travels at an average speed of 70km/h, he would arrive half an hour earlier. Find the distance between cities A and B and the speed at which a driver would have to go to arrive at the specified hour.

Result

s =  175 km
v =  58.333 km/h

Solution:


s = 50*(t+30/60)
s = 70*(t-0.50)

60s-3000t = 1500
s-70t = -35

s = 175
t = 3

Calculated by our linear equations calculator.
v=s/t=175/3175358.333358.333 km/hv=s/t=175/3 \doteq \dfrac{ 175 }{ 3 } \doteq 58.3333 \doteq 58.333 \ \text{km/h}



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!
