Distance, Speed, and Time Kiran drove from Tortula to Cactus, a distance of 250 mi. She increased her speed by 10 mi/h for the 360-mi trip from Cactus to Dry Junction. If the total trip took 11 h, what was her speed from Tortula to Cactus?
To find: The speed of vehicle from Tortula to Cactus.
The distance from Tortula to Cactus is 250 mi and distance from Cactus from Dry Junction is 360 mi.
Kiran increases the speed in second leg by 10 mi/h. Total time for complete the trip is 11h.
Distance formula is,
Let the speed of vehicle from Tortula to Cactus be x ft/s.
Tabulate the given information into the language of algebra.
|Tortula to Cactus||250||x|
|Cactus to Dry Junction||360|
Model the equation for the above information.
