Two cars traveled equal distances in different amounts of time.

Car A traveled the distance in 2 h, and Car B traveled the distance in 1.5 h.
Car B traveled 15 mph faster than Car A. How fast did Car B travel?

Answer

d=v cdot t d - distance v - speed t - time Car v_1 t_1=2 d_1=v cdot 2=2 v Car 15 mph faster than car A v_2=v_1+15 t_2=1 5 d_2= v_1+15 cdot 1 5=1 5v_1 + 22 5 Both cars traveled equal d_1=d_2 2v_1 = 1 5v_1+22 5 2v_1-1 5v_1=22 5 0 5v_1=22 5 v_1=45 v_2=45 + 15 =60 Car B traveled at the speed of 60 mph.
