Thank you very much,Found 2 solutions by terbear1963, funmath:Answer by terbear1963(43)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!1st you have to write an algebraic equation for the word problem. 35x + 25x = 600. 35x is the one boy and 25x is the other boy. By solving the equation - you get that x = 10. By plugging 10 into the original problem you get 35(10) + 25(10) = 600. Therefore, your answer is 10 minutes ( x = the time in minutes ) Your math friend, Terry cats7051@yahoo.com Answer by funmath(2925)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Distance=rate*time, the total of their distances=600 m They travel the same amount of time represent that by the variable t. The rate of A=35 m/min, the rate of B=25m/min. The distance that A travels=35t, the distance that B travels=25t. Our equation to solve is: 35t+25t=600 60t=600 60t/60=600/60 t=10 min They travel for 10 minutes before they meet each other.
