If the jets pass each other after 2.5 hours, what is the rate of the faster jet?Answer by robertb(4012)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!2.5x + 2.5(x+ 100) = 4000 ===> 2.5x + 2.5x +250 = 4000 ===> 5x = 3750 ===> x = 750 kph, the rate of one jet, x + 100 = 850 kph, the rate of the faster jet.
