One morning he walked part of the way to school and ran the rest. If it took him 20 minutes or less to get to school, and he walks at 70 m/min and runs 210 m/min, how far did he run? ** let x=distance Tom ran 1800-x=distance Tom walked travel time=distance/rate of speed .. x/210+(1800-x)/70=20 LCD:210 x+3(1800-x)=4200 x+5400-3x=4200 2x=1200 x=600 m ans: distance Tom ran=600 m
