We know that distance = rate * time That means that time = distance / rate We know that the ‘to and from’ time was 5 hours.  We know that going is a rate of five less than the return trip.  So we will let r = rate going and r – 5 = rate returning Now let’s set it up We will multiply by the lcd which is r(r-5)

Unformatted text preview: 64r - 285 = 5r 2 25r -64r +285 -64r + 285 0 = 5r 2 89r + 285 Solve using the quadratic formula. A = 5, B = -89, C = 285 R = 13.61 or 4.19 It cant be 4.19 because the r-5 would be negative. So r = 13.61 and r 5 = 8.61 If you have any questions about the steps I did, please let me know. Thanks.
