Yo’s hi and Mariam are both driving from Chicago to Columbus yo’s hi leaves at 8:00 and averages 60 mph on the way.Mariam leaves at 8:15 and averages 65 mph on the way. The situation is modeled by this system, where x is the number of hours after Mariam leaves and y is the distance each will travel: y=60x+15

How long after Miriam leaves will she pass Yoshi, and how far will they each travel?


  1. Answer:
    x = 3
    y = 195
    Step-by-step explanation:
    y = 60x + 15
    y = 65x
    65x = 60x + 15
    5x = 15
    x = 3
    y = 65(3)
    y = 195
    Hope it helps!
