If the city of Franklin lies along a certain route between the cities of Maple Valley and Viewcrest, what is the distance along the route from Franklin to Maple Valley?

(1) Traveling from Viewcrest to Maple Valley at an average rate of 45 m.p.h. takes 20 minutes longer than at an average rate of 50 m.p.h.

(2) Traveling along the route at a constant 25 miles per gallon of gas, a car will use twice as much gas between Maple Valley and Franklin as it will use between Franklin and Viewcrest.

with A, you can figure out how far it is between Viewcrest and Maple Valley.

With B, you can figure out the ratio between the two legs of the trip.

With both, you can take how long one leg is, figure out the other leg, and add them together.

Interestingly, I have a brain cramp and cannot figure out the distance in under 10 seconds, but I'm sure it can be done...
