Distance-Rate-Time Applications Example 1: Amy rides her bike to work in 30 minutes. On the way home she catches a ride with a friend and arrives home in 10 minutes. If the rate on the ride home was 20mph faster than the rate going to work, what is the distance from her home to work? 1) Variable declaration:

Distance-Rate-Time Applications Example 1: 1) Variable declaration: Since the rate going home is in terms of the rate going to work, let x represent the rate going to work. Amy rides her bike to work in 30 minutes. On the way home she catches a ride with a friend and arrives home in 10 minutes. If the rate on the ride home was 20mph faster than the rate going to work, what is the distance from her home to work?

Drt To Work Return Home The rate returning home was 20mph faster than the rate going, or x+20. Amy rides her bike to work in 30 minutes. On the way home she catches a ride with a friend and arrives home in 10 minutes. If the rate on the ride home was 20mph faster than the rate going to work, what is the distance from her home to work?

Drt To Work Return Home The time going to work is 30 minutes, or … Amy rides her bike to work in 30 minutes. On the way home she catches a ride with a friend and arrives home in 10 minutes. If the rate on the ride home was 20mph faster than the rate going to work, what is the distance from her home to work?

Drt To Work Return Home The time returning home is 10 minutes, or … Amy rides her bike to work in 30 minutes. On the way home she catches a ride with a friend and arrives home in 10 minutes. If the rate on the ride home was 20mph faster than the rate going to work, what is the distance from her home to work?

Drt To Work Return Home Amy rides her bike to work in 30 minutes. On the way home she catches a ride with a friend and arrives home in 10 minutes. If the ride home was 3 times the rate going to work, what is the distance from her home to work? Since distance = rate × time, the distance to work is the product of the rate and time … Do the same with the distance home …

Amy rides her bike to work in 30 minutes. On the way home she catches a ride with a friend and arrives home in 10 minutes. If the ride home was 3 times the rate going to work, what is the distance from her home to work? Since the distances are the same, we have … 2) Write the equation Drt To Work Return Home

3) Solve the equation:

4) Write an answer in words, explaining the meaning in light of the application What was asked for in the application Amy rides her bike to work in 30 minutes. On the way home she catches a ride with a friend and arrives home in 10 minutes. If the ride home was 3 times the rate going to work, what is the distance from her home to work?

x = rate riding to work The rate riding to work was 10 mph. 1/2 hour = time riding to work The distance from home to work was 5 miles.

Distance-Rate-Time Applications Example 2: Max leaves a gas station in Denver at 11:00am heading west. At the same time, Mary leaves the same station heading east. Since Max is driving in the mountains, his average rate is 10 mph slower than Marys. At 3:00pm they are 480 miles apart. Determine Maxs rate. 1) Variable declaration:

Since Max is driving in the mountains, his average rate is 10 mph slower than Marys. At 3:00pm they are 480 miles apart. Determine Maxs rate. Since Sams rate is given in terms of Marys rate, let x represent Marys rate. 1) Variable declaration:

Drt Sam Mary Sams rate is 10 mph slower than Marys, or x-10. Max leaves a gas station in Denver at 11:00am heading west. At the same time, Mary leaves the same station heading east. Since Max is driving in the mountains, his average rate is 10 mph slower than Marys. At 3:00pm they are 480 miles apart. Determine Maxs rate.

Drt Sam Mary Both Sam and Mary were traveling the same amount of time, from 11:00am to 3:00pm, which is 4 hours. Max leaves a gas station in Denver at 11:00am heading west. At the same time, Mary leaves the same station heading east. Since Max is driving in the mountains, his average rate is 10 mph slower than Marys. At 3:00pm they are 480 miles apart. Determine Maxs rate.

Since Max is driving in the mountains, his average rate is 10 mph slower than Marys. At 3:00pm they are 480 miles apart. Determine Maxs rate. Since distance = rate × time, Sams distance is … … and Marys distance is…

Drt Sam Mary Max leaves a gas station in Denver at 11:00am heading west. At the same time, Mary leaves the same station heading east. Since Max is driving in the mountains, his average rate is 10 mph slower than Marys. At 3:00pm they are 480 miles apart. Determine Maxs rate. (Sams distance) + (Marys distance) = 480 miles 2) Write the equation

3) Solve the equation:

4) Write an answer in words, explaining the meaning in light of the application What was asked for in the application Max leaves a gas station in Denver at 11:00am heading west. At the same time, Mary leaves the same station heading east. Since Max is driving in the mountains, his average rate is 10 mph slower than Marys. At 3:00pm they are 480 miles apart. Determine Maxs rate.

x =Marys rate Marys rate was 65 mph. Maxs rate was x – 10. Maxs rate was 55 mph.

Distance-Rate-Time Applications Example 3: A plane travels against a 30mph wind for 3 hours. Then the plane travels with the same wind for 2 hours. The combined distance is 1270 miles. Determine the rate of the plane in still air. 1) Variable declaration: Let x represent the rate of the plane in still air.

Drt Against the wind With the wind When the plane is going against the wind, the ground speed is reduced by the rate of the wind. The rate against the wind is given by … (rate of the plane)- (rate of the wind) A plane travels against a 30mph wind for 3 hours. Then the plane travels with the same wind for 2 hours. The combined distance is 1270 miles. Determine the rate of the plane in still air.

Drt Against the wind With the wind When the plane is going with the wind, the ground speed is increased by the rate of the wind. The rate with the wind is given by … (rate of the plane)+ (rate of the wind) A plane travels against a 30mph wind for 3 hours. Then the plane travels with the same wind for 2 hours. The combined distance is 1270 miles. Determine the rate of the plane in still air.

Drt Against the wind With the wind The time against the wind is 3 hours … … and the time with the wind is 2 hours. A plane travels against a 30mph wind for 3 hours. Then the plane travels with the same wind for 2 hours. The combined distance is 1270 miles. Determine the rate of the plane in still air.

Drt Against the wind With the wind A plane travels against a 30mph wind for 3 hours. Then the plane travels with the same wind for 2 hours. The combined distance is 1270 miles. Determine the rate of the plane in still air. Since distance = rate × time, the distance against the wind is … … and the time with the wind is…

Drt Against the wind With the wind A plane travels against a 30mph wind for 3 hours. Then the plane travels with the same wind for 2 hours. The combined distance is 1270 miles. Determine the rate of the plane in still air. 2) Write the equation (distance against the wind)+(distance with the wind) = 1270
