A 3 hour river cruise goes 15 km upstream and then back again. The river has a current of 2 km an hour. What is the boat's speed and how long was the upstream journey?
[U]Set up the relationship of still water speed and downstream speed[/U]
Speed down stream = Speed in still water + speed of the current
Speed down stream = x+2
Therefore:
Speed upstream =x - 2
Since distance = rate * time, we rearrange to get time = Distance/rate:
15/(x+ 2) + 15 /(x- 2) = 3
Multiply each side by 1/3 and we get:
5/(x + 2) + 5/(x - 2) = 1
Using a common denominator of (x + 2)(x - 2), we get:
5(x - 2)/(x + 2)(x - 2) + 5(x + 2)/(x + 2)(x - 2)
(5x - 10 + 5x + 10)/5(x - 2)/(x + 2)(x - 2)
10x = (x+2)(x-2)
We multiply through on the right side to get:
10x = x^2 - 4
Subtract 10x from each side:
x^2 - 10x - 4 = 0
This is a quadratic equation. To solve it, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=x%5E2-10x-4%3D0&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']we type it in our search engine[/URL] and we get:
Speed of the boat in still water =X=5 +- sq. Root of 29 kmph
We only want the positive solution:
x = 5 + sqrt(29)
x = 10.38
[U]Calculate time for upstream journey:[/U]
Time for upstream journey = 15/(10.38 - 2)
Time for upstream journey = 15/(8.38)
Time for upstream journey = [B]1.79[/B]
[U]Calculate time for downstream journey:[/U]
Time for downstream journey = 15/(10.38 + 2)
Time for downstream journey = 15/(12.38)
Time for downstream journey = [B]1.21[/B]

We want to find h(10)
h(n) = 6(0.75)^n

8 0.6006774902
9 0.4505081177
10 0.3378810883
Adding up each bounce from 1-10, we get:
16.98635674
Since vertical distance means both [B]up and down[/B], we multiply this number by 2 to get:
16.98635674 * 2 = 33.97271347
Then we add in the initial bounce of 6 to get:

A student and the marine biologist are together at t = 0. The student ascends more slowly than the marine biologist. Write an equation of a function that could represent the student's ascent. Please keep in mind the slope for the marine biologist is 12.
Slope means rise over run.
In this case, rise is the ascent distance and run is the time.

We're given d = 12.5 and r = 5
12.5 = 5t
5t = 12.5
Solve for t. Divide each side of the equation by 5:
5t/5 = 12.5/5
Cancel the 5's on left side and we get:
t = [B]2.5[/B]

A tow truck charges a service fee of $50 and an additional fee of $1.75 per mile. What distance was

A tow truck charges a service fee of $50 and an additional fee of $1.75 per mile. What distance was Marcos car towed if he received a bill for $71
Set up a cost equation C(m) where m is the number of miles:
C(m) = Cost per mile * m + Service Fee
Plugging in the service fee of 50 and cost per mile of 1.75, we get:
C(m) = 1.75m + 50
The question asks for what m is C(m) = 71. So we set C(m) = 71 and solve for m:
1.75m + 50 = 71
Solve for [I]m[/I] in the equation 1.75m + 50 = 71
[SIZE=5][B]Step 1: Group constants:[/B][/SIZE]
We need to group our constants 50 and 71. To do that, we subtract 50 from both sides
1.75m + 50 - 50 = 71 - 50
[SIZE=5][B]Step 2: Cancel 50 on the left side:[/B][/SIZE]
1.75m = 21
[SIZE=5][B]Step 3: Divide each side of the equation by 1.75[/B][/SIZE]
1.75m/1.75 = 21/1.75
m = [B]12[/B]

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.

A woman walked for 5 hours, first along a level road, then up a hill, and then she turned around and walked back to the starting point along the same path. She walks 4mph on level ground, 3 mph uphill, and 6 mph downhill. Find the distance she walked.
Hint: Think about d = rt, which means that t = d/r. Think about each section of her walk, what is the distance and the rate. You know that the total time is 5 hours, so you know the sum of the times from each section must be 5.
Let Level distance = L and hill distance = H. Add the times it took for each section of the walk:

If the speed of an aeroplane is reduced by 40km/hr, it takes 20 minutes more to cover 1200m. Find th

If the speed of an aeroplane is reduced by 40km/hr, it takes 20 minutes more to cover 1200m. Find the time taken by aeroplane to cover 1200m initially.
We know from the distance formula (d) using rate (r) and time (t) that:
d = rt
Regular speed:
1200 = rt
Divide each side by t, we get:
r = 1200/t
Reduced speed. 20 minutes = 60/20 = 1/3 of an hour. So we multiply 1,200 by 3
3600 = (r - 40)(t + 1/3)
If we multiply 3 by (t + 1/3), we get:
3t + 1
So we have:
3600 = (r - 40)(3t + 1)
Substitute r = 1200/t into the reduced speed equation:
3600 = (1200/t - 40)(3t + 1)
Multiply through and we get:
3600 = 3600 - 120t + 1200/t - 40
Subtract 3,600 from each side
3600 - 3600 = 3600 - 3600 - 120t + 1200/t - 40
The 3600's cancel, so we get:
- 120t + 1200/t - 40 = 0
Multiply each side by t:
-120t^2 - 40t + 1200 = 0
We've got a quadratic equation. To solve for t, [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/quadratic.php?num=-120t%5E2-40t%2B1200%3D0&pl=Solve+Quadratic+Equation&hintnum=+0']we type this in our search engine[/URL] and we get:

Jenny threw the javelin 4 metres further than Angus but 5 metres less than Cameron. if the combined distance thrown by the 3 friends is 124 metres, how far did Angus throw the javelin?
Assumptions and givens:
[LIST]
[*]Let a be the distance Angus threw the javelin
[*]Let c be the distance Cameron threw the javelin
[*]Let j be the distance Jenny threw the javelin
[/LIST]
We're given 3 equations:
[LIST=1]
[*]j = a + 4
[*]j = c - 5
[*]a + c + j = 124
[/LIST]
Since j is the common variable in all 3 equations, let's rearrange equation (1) and equation (2) in terms of j as the dependent variable:
[LIST=1]
[*]a = j - 4
[*]c = j + 5
[*]a + c + j = 124
[/LIST]
Now substitute equation (1) and equation (2) into equation (3) for a and c:
j - 4 + j + 5 + j = 124
To solve this equation for j, we [URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=j-4%2Bj%2B5%2Bj%3D124&pl=Solve']type it in our math engine[/URL] and we get:
j = 41
The question asks how far Angus (a) threw the javelin. Since we have Jenny's distance j = 41 and equation (1) has j and a together, let's substitute j = 41 into equation (1):
a = 41 - 4
a = [B]37 meters[/B]

The cost of a taxi ride is $1.2 for the first mile and $0.85 for each additional mile or part thereof. Find the maximum distance we can ride if we have $20.75.
We set up the cost function C(m) where m is the number of miles:

When a dog noticed a fox, they were 60 meters apart. The dog immediately started to chase the fox at a speed of 750 meters per minute. The fox started to run away at a speed of 720 meters per minute. How soon will the dog catch the fox?
The dog sits a position p.
Distance = Rate x Time
The dogs distance in minutes is D = 720t
The fox sits at position p + 60
Distance = Rate x Time
The fox's distance in minutes is D = 750t - 60 <-- Subtract 60 since the fox is already ahead 60 meters.
We want to know when their distance (location) is the same. So we set both distance equations equal to each other:
720t = 750t - 60
[URL='https://www.mathcelebrity.com/1unk.php?num=720t%3D750t-60&pl=Solve']Using our equation calculator[/URL], we get [B]t = 2[/B].
Let's check our work:
Dog's distance is 720(2) = 1440
Fox's distance is 750(2) - 60 = 1,440

which number is the same distance from 0 on the number line as 4

which number is the same distance from 0 on the number line as 4
We use absolute value for distance.
Since 4 is 4 units right of 0 on the number line, we can also move 4 units left of 0 on the number line and we land on [B]-4[/B]

Yolanda is riding her bicycle. She rides for 5 hours at a speed of 12.5 kilometers per hours. For how many kilometers does she ride?
This is a distance problem, where distance = rate * time. We are given time of 5 hours, at a rate of 12.5km/hour.
Using our [URL='http://www.mathcelebrity.com/drt.php?d=+&r=12.5&t=5&pl=Calculate+the+missing+Item+from+D%3DRT']distance calculator[/URL], we get D = [B]62.5km[/B].
