In the same time it takes Carlos to bicycle 60 km, Jodie can bicycle 84 km. How fast does each bicyclist travel? let Carlos speed at x kmph Jodie speed = x+8 kmph .. Carlos distance = 60 km Jodie distance = 84 km .. Carlos time = 60/x Jodie time = 84/(x+8) .. 60/x = 84/(x+8) 84x=60(x+8) 84x=60x+480 84x-60x=480 24x=480 x= 20 kmph x+8 = 20 +8 = 28 kmph Carlos travels _20___ km/h Jodie travels 28____ km/h
