 Question 211257This question is from textbook Intermediate Algebra : Uniform motion problem. Suppose that you are walking along the side of train tracks at 2mph. A train is traveling 20mph in the same direction requires 1 minute to pass you. How long is the train?This question is from textbook Intermediate Algebra Answer by RAY100(1637)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Velocity = Distance / Time,,,,or d = v * t . In this case the relative velocity is (20-2) = 18 mph . d = 18mph * t ,,,,but t= 1 min,, or 1/60 hr . d = 18 mph * 1/60 hr . d = .3 miles .
