A jet left Nairobi and flew east at an average speed of 231 mph. A passenger plane left four hours later and flew in the same direction but with an average speed of 385 mph. How long did the jet fly before the passenger plane caught up?
Jet distance = 231t
Passenger plane distance = 385(t - 4)
385(t - 4) = 231t
385t - 1540 = 231t
Subtract 231t from each side
154t = 1540
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=154t%3D1540&pl=Solve']Type 154t = 1540[/URL] into the search engine, we get [B]t = 10.

Check our work:
Jet distance = 231(10) = 2,310
Passenger plane distance = 385(10 - 4) = 385 * 6 = 2,310

A new company president is said to have caused the company "to do a 180." Before the new president,

A new company president is said to have caused the company "to do a 180." Before the new president, the company was losing money. What is the company most likely doing under the new president?
A 180 is a completely different direction. Since 180 degrees means the other way, a half-circle, a switch in direction.
This means if the company was losing money, after doing a "180", they're making money.

A train leaves San Diego at 1:00 PM. A second train leaves the same city in the same direction at 3

A train leaves San Diego at 1:00 PM. A second train leaves the same city in the same direction at 3:00 PM. The second train travels 30mph faster than the first. If the second train overtakes the first at 6:00 PM, what is the speed of each of the two trains?
Distance = Rate x Time
Train 1:
d = rt
t = 1:oo PM to 6:00 PM = 5 hours
So we have d = 5r
Train 2:
d = (r + 30)t
t = 3:oo PM to 6:00 PM = 3 hours
So we have d = 3(r + 30)
Set both distances equal to each other since overtake means Train 2 caught up with Train 1, meaning they both traveled the same distance:
5r = 3(r + 30)
Multiply through:
3r + 90 = 5r
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=3r%2B90%3D5r&pl=Solve']Run this equation through our search engine[/URL], and we get [B]r = 45[/B]. This is Train 1's Speed.
Train 2's speed = 3(r + 30).
Plugging r = 45 into this, we get 3(45 + 30).

Guadalupe left the restaurant traveling 12 mph. Then, 3 hours later, Lauren left traveling the same

Guadalupe left the restaurant traveling 12 mph. Then, 3 hours later, Lauren left traveling the same direction at 24 mph. How long will Lauren travel before catching up with Guadalupe?
Distance = Rate x Time
Guadulupe will meet Lauren at the following distance:
12t = 24(t - 3)
12t = 24t - 72

Scott and Dylan both leave the park at the same time, but in opposite directions. If Scott travels 1

Scott and Dylan both leave the park at the same time, but in opposite directions. If Scott travels 12 mph and Dylan travels 19 mph, how long until they are 186 miles apart?
Hour 1, they are 19 + 12 = 31 miles apart. So each hour, they get 31 miles more apart.
When they are [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/fraction.php?frac1=186%2F31&frac2=3%2F8&pl=Simplify']186 miles apart[/URL], we divide this by 31 miles apart per hour:
186/31 = [B]6 hours[/B]

Vectors

Free Vectors Calculator - Given 2 vectors A and B, this calculates:

* Length (magnitude) of A = ||A||

* Length (magnitude) of B = ||B||

* Sum of A and B = A + B (addition)

* Difference of A and B = A - B (subtraction)

* Dot Product of vectors A and B = A x B

A ÷ B (division)

* Distance between A and B = AB

* Angle between A and B = θ

* Unit Vector U of A.

* Determines the relationship between A and B to see if they are orthogonal (perpendicular), same direction, or parallel (includes parallel planes).

* Cauchy-Schwarz Inequality

* The orthogonal projection of A on to B, proj_{B}A and and the vector component of A orthogonal to B → A - proj_{B}A

Also calculates the horizontal component and vertical component of a 2-D vector.
