Question

Tevin and Riley are 280 feet apart when they start walking toward one another. Riley walks twice as fast as Tevin so whenever Tevin travels
x feet, Riley travels 2x feet. Let x represent the number of feet Tevin has traveled since he started walking toward Riley.

Write an expression in terms of x to represent the distance (in feet) between Tevin and Riley.

Let d represent the distance (in feet) between Tevin and Riley. Write a formula that expresses d in terms of x.
