Ques 18: Jiang begins driving away from Marksville at a constant speed of 64 miles per hour. How far will she be from Marksville after 2 hours and 15 minutes?

Ans:

Therefore, 2 hours and 15 minutes is equivalent to 2.25 hours.

Ans:

For the first portion, we know that Tom traveled for 2 hours at 60 miles per hour. We can use these values in the D = R T formula to figure out how far he went.

Since Tom traveled 120 miles during the first portion of his journey he has 180 - 120 = 60 miles to travel during the second part. We know that, during this portion, he traveled at 45 miles per hour, allowing us to use the D = RT equation to calculate how long this portion of the journey took.

Tom s entire journey took 3 hours and 20 minutes: 2 hours for the first portion and 1 hour 20 minutes for the second portion. Finally, we must add 3 hours and 20 minutes to Toms starting time of 1:00 pm to calculate when Tom completed his journey, 4:20 pm.
