Teneka and Francis leave Town A at 9:00 a.m. driving north along Highway B, in seperate cars. Teneka drives 30 miles per hour and Francis drives 40 miles per hour. If after traveling 240 miles Francis' car breaks down and stops, at what time will Teneka's car reach Francis' car?

A. 11 p.m.

B. 10 p.m.

C. 6 p.m.

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
