 Question 501008: Hi! I am sorry if this kind of question has been asked often before, but I just couldnt figure out how to solve and I would be so thankful if anyone could tell how to solve this mathematically. Thanks so much in advance! "Through a combination of sight, sound, and smell a rabbit can detect a fox at 42 yards. When the rabbit detects the fox, it runs immediately straight to its hole. If the fox can run twice as fast as the rabbit, what is the maximum distance from its hole that a rabbit can safely venture? Assume that the rabbit escapes if they arrive at the hole at the same time." Kind regards Fube Click here to see answer by MathTherapy(1817)

 Question 636832: The distance between city A and B is 90 kilometers. At the same time, a car and a motorcycle left from city A to city B. The motorcycle drove at a constant speed the entire drive and the car passed 1/3 of the drive 30 kilometers per hour faster than the motorcycle's speed, stopped for half an hour, and then continued the drive at a speed 20% slower than the speed driven in the first 1/3 of the drive. The car arrived 15 minutes before the motorcycle to city B (they drove the same distance). What was the speed of the motorcycle? This is supposed to be easy, I just keep messing up somewhere. I know Distance=Speed*Time The motorcycle's speed is x, and the time is 90/x (because the distance is 90) The car's speed is x+30, and the time is 30/x+30 (because 1/3 of 90 is 30) Then the speed is .80(x+30) and the time is 60/.8x+24 (the remaining distance being 60 km) but the car stopped for half an hour, and then arrived 15 minutes before the motorcycle, so I only add 1/4 of an hour to the time in the second equation.. After this step I keep getting stuck... Could you please help me finish? Thanks so much! I don't know what I would do without your help! Click here to see answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(16524)
