For which problem situation could the equation 45x + 55x = 350 be used?
A 350 mile telephone cable costs $55 per mile for one section and $45 per mile for a different section. What is the total cost of the cable?
A car, traveling 45 mph, leaves Dallas heading for Odessa 350 miles away. At the same time, a truck leaves Odessa for Dallas traveling 55 mph on the same road. When will the two vehicles meet?
A 350 mile telephone cable is cut so the shorter piece is 45/55 of the whole cable. How long is each piece?
Two vehicles start from the same point traveling in the same direction. One vehicle travels 55 miles per hour (mph) and the other 45 mph. When will the two vehicles be 350 miles apart?
3/5(x-7/10) = -31/4
open the bracket:
3/5 * x-7/10 = -31/4
3/5 + 31/4 = 7x/10
(12+155)/20 = 7x/10°
167/20 = 7x/10
140x = 1670
x = 11(13/14)
