 Linear-systems/554120: Eight years ago, Albert was 3/4 of Bilbos age. in 22 years he will be 9/10 of Bilbos age. How old is Bilbo now?1 solutions Answer 361295 by ankor@dixie-net.com(15624)   on 2012-01-08 19:18:16 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Eight years ago, Albert was 3/4 of Bilbos age. in 22 years he will be 9/10 of Bilbos age. How old is Bilbo now? : Let a = Al's present age Let b = Bil's : "Eight years ago, Albert was 3/4 of Bilbos age." a - 8 = (b-8) multiply both sides by 4 4(a-8) = 3(b-8) 4a - 32 = 3b - 24 4a = 3b - 24 + 32 4a = 3b + 8 divide both sides by 4 a = .75b + 2 : "in 22 years he will be 9/10 of Bilbos age. " a + 22 = (b+22) multiply both sides by 10 10(a + 22) = 9(b + 22) 10a + 220 = 9b + 198 10a = 9b + 198 - 220 10a = 9b - 22 Replace a with (.75b+2) 10(.75b + 2) = 9b - 22 7.5b + 20 = 9b - 22 20 + 22 = 9b - 7.5b 42 = 1.5b b = 42/1.5 b = 28 is Bil's age : : : Find a, then check the solutions in both statements: a = .75(28) + 2 a = 23 is Al's age

What is the average speed for the whole trip? : Let d = distance driven at each speed then 2d = distance of the whole trip : let a = the average speed for the whole trip : Write a time equation; time = dist/speed : 45mph time + 55mph time = total time + = Multiply by the LCM of 45 and 55, 495a 495a* + 495a* = 495a cancel the denominators; 11ad + 9ad = 495(2d) 20ad = 990d divide both sides by d 20a = 990 a = 990/20 a = 49.5 mph is the average speed for the trip : ; : Let's check this out, using an assigned distance of 200 mi + = 2.22 + 1.82 = 4.04 4.04 = 4.04; confirms our average speed of 49.5 mph
