An hour later, Phil leaves Los Angeles and travels toward San Francisco at 60 mi/h. If the two cities are 380 miles apart, how many hours will it take for Ching to meet Phil? ----------- Ching DATA: rate= 50 mph ; Time = x hr. ; Distance = 50x mi ---------- Phil DATA: rate = 60 mph ; Time = x-1 hr ; Distance = 60(x-1)=60x-60 mi ------------- EQUATION: distance + distance = 380 mi. 50x+60x-60=380 110x=440 x=4 hrs. They will meet 4 hrs after Ching leaaves home. Cheers, Stan H.
