( If there is not enough information given, indicate that no solution can be found) Answer by checkley77(12569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!D=RT 2,000=(100+X+100)T 2,000=(200+X)T T=2,000/(200+X) NO UNIQUE SOLUTION WHEN YOU HAVE 2 UNKNOWNS IN 1 EQUATION. EX: T=2,000/(200+50) T=2,000/250 T=8 HOURS. T=2,000/(200+100) T=2,000/300 T=6.667 HOURS. T=2,000/(200+200) T=2,000/400 T=5 HOURS.
