Q:
# Two cyclists leave town at the same time on the same road going in the same direction. Cyclist a is going 6 miles per hour faster than cyclist b. After 8 hours, cyclist a has traveled three times the distance as cyclist b. Use the equation 24x= 8(x+6) to find how fast cyclist b was traveling.

Accepted Solution

A:

24x=8x+48

16x=48

/16 /16

x=3

16x=48

/16 /16

x=3
