Q:
# Jeremy and Gerardo run at a constant speeds. Jeremy can run 1 mile in 8 minutes,and Gerardo can 3 miles in 33 minutes. Jeremy started running 10 minutes after Gerardo. assuming they run the same path, when will Jeremy catch up with Gerardo? write the linear equation that represents Jeremy's constant speed.

Accepted Solution

A:

not sure about the linear equation but Jeremy catches up in 3 min.

1. divide 33 by 3 = 11 so Gerardo runs 1 mile in 11min

2. 11-8 =3 so Jeremy catches up in 3 min

1. divide 33 by 3 = 11 so Gerardo runs 1 mile in 11min

2. 11-8 =3 so Jeremy catches up in 3 min
