Hopefully, my solution is correct
If Francis drives 40 miles per hour. After 240 miles Francis' car breaks down then

40 x t = 240
t = 6 hours
Then Francis' car broke down by 3 pm.

Teneka reaches Francis car:
30 x t = 240
t = 8 hours
Then Teneka reaches Francis car by 5 pm

Which is answer D

Distance traveled = 240/40, which means Francis has driven 6 hours. At 6 hours, Teneka has driven 180 miles (30 * 6), so it will take her (240-180) 60 miles/30 MPH = 2 additional hours.

6 hours after 9:00 is 3:00 P.M.
2 Additional hours makes it 5:00 P.M.
Answer: D

A. 11 p.m.
B. 10 p.m.
C. 6 p.m.
D. 5 p.m.
E. 3 p.m.



Since distance/rate = time and 240/30 = 8, Taneka had to drive 8 hours to reach Francis.

So, she reached Francis at 9 a.m. + 8 hours = 5 p.m.

Answer: D

D. 5 p.m.
E. 3 p.m.


Given: Francis drives 240 miles and then stops (breaks down)

So, Teneka will reach Francis once Teneka drives 240 miles.

How long will it take Teneka to drive 240 miles?
Time = distance/speed = (240 miles)/(30 miles per hour) = 8 hours

Teneka started driving at 9:00am
So, after 8 hours, the time will be 5pm

Answer: D

Cheers,
Brent

C. 6 p.m.
D. 5 p.m.
E. 3 p.m.


Distance = 240 miles

Francis' travel time when car broke down = 240/40 = 6 hours

Means, 9 a.m. + 6 hrs = 3 pm

Teneka's speed = 30 m/hr

Teneka's time when joined Francis = 240/30 = 8hrs

Means, 9 a.m. + 8 hrs = 5 pm

Hence (D)
