Two cyclists start biking from a trailâ€™s start 3 hours apart. The second cyclist travels at 10 miles per hour and starts 3 hours after the first cyclist who is traveling at 6 miles per hour. How much time will pass before the second cyclist catches up with the first from the time the second cyclist started biking?
a) 2 hours
b) 4 Â½ hours
c) 5 Â¾ hours
d) 6 hours
e) 7 Â½ hours
A bit unclear question... what exactly does this "3 hours apart" means...
It is written that the second cyclist starts 3 hours after the first, so is this the repeated info or not? if yes, the answer is 4.5 hours.
B: rate=6/1.......t=t+3 (started 3 hours earlier).....d=d
Construct two equations:
But the question is bit unclear to me.....
