 Question 159097: K takes less time than M to travel a distance of 30 miles. K travels 1/3 mile per hour faster than M. If x is K's rate of speed in miles per hour then find K's time for the distance in terms of x Answer by nerdybill(7375)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! K takes less time than M to travel a distance of 30 miles. K travels 1/3 mile per hour faster than M. If x is K's rate of speed in miles per hour then find K's time for the distance in terms of x . Let x = K's rate of speed . This problem you must apply the "distance formula": d = rt where d is distance r is rate or speed t is time . For, k to travel 30 miles: Solving the formula for t: d = rt t = d/r . K's time: t = 30/x hours (I believe this is what the problem is asking for) .
