Dirty road

Mr. Smith is on a road trip to a remote disc golf course 180km away. He travels part of the way at 100km/h along the highway, and part of the way at 50km/h along dirt roads. If it took 2 hours to get there, how many hours did he spend on dirt roads?

Result

d =  20 km

Solution:

 d+h=180 d/50+h/100=2  d+h=180 2d+h=200  d=20 =20 km h=160  \ \\ d+h=180 \ \\ d/50 + h/100=2 \ \\ \ \\ d+h=180 \ \\ 2d+h=200 \ \\ \ \\ d=20 \ \\ =20 \ \text{km} \ \\ h=160 \ \\



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!
