Hi All,

This is an example of a combined rate question. Since Ann drives at 50 miles/hour and Bill drives at 70 miles/hour, they travel a total of 120 miles each hour. The starting distance between them is 200 miles, so we can figure out how long it would take them to meet up...

D = (R)(T)

200 miles = (120 miles/hour)(Time)

200/120 = Time

5/3 hours = Time to meet

The questions how far they are from PORTLAND when they meet. Since Anne is traveling from Portland, and they meet after 5/3 hours, we can figure out how far Anne is from Portland...

D = (R)(T)

D = (50 miles/hour)(5/3 hours)

D = 250/3 miles

D = 83.33333 miles
