Most tunnels are drilled using tunnel-boring machines that begin at both ends of the tunnel. Suppose a new underwater tunnel is being built and one tunnel-boring machine alone can finish the tunnel in 4 years. A different type of machine can tunnel to the other side in 3 years. If both machines start at opposite ends and work at the same time, when will the tunnel be finished?

16
**Solve equation: multiply by common denominator (4)(3)(x).**

17
**If both machines work toward each other it will take 1**

If both machines work toward each other it will take 1.7 years to finish the tunnel.

18
**If both machines work toward each other it will take 1**

If both machines work toward each other it will take 1.7 years to finish the tunnel.

A car travels 300 km in the same time that a freight train travels 200 km. The speed of the car is 20 km/h more than the speed of the train. Find the speed of the car and the speed of the train.

20
**Let x = speed of train Let x + 20 = speed of car**

A car travels 300 km in the same time that a freight train travels 200 km. The speed of the car is 20 km/h more than the speed of the train. Find the speed of the car and the speed of the train. Let x = speed of train Let x + 20 = speed of car

21
**Let x = speed of train Let x + 20 = speed of car**

A car travels 300 km in the same time that a freight train travels 200 km. The speed of the car is 20 km/h more than the speed of the train. Find the speed of the car and the speed of the train. Let x = speed of train Let x + 20 = speed of car

**Use the formula d = rt. Solve for “t”.**

23
**Use the formula d = rt. Solve for “t”.**

t = d/r

24
**Use the formula d = rt. Solve for “t”.**

t = d/r

25
**Use the formula d = rt. Solve for “t”.**

t = d/r

26
**Use the formula d = rt. Solve for “t”.**

t = d/r

27
**Solve: multiply by the common denominator (x + 20)(x).**

28
**Solve: multiply by the common denominator (x + 20)(x).**

29
**Solve: multiply by the common denominator (x + 20)(x).**

30
**Solve: multiply by the common denominator (x + 20)(x).**

31
**Solve: multiply by the common denominator (x + 20)(x).**

32
Speed of train = x = 40 km/h

33
Speed of train = x = 40 km/h Speed of car = x + 20 = 60 km/h

34
Speed of train = x = 40 km/h Speed of car = x + 20 = 60 km/h

One pipe can fill a tank in 6 hours while another can empty it in 2 hours. How long will it take to empty the full tank if both pipes are open at once?

44
**Let x = time to empty full tank**

One pipe can fill a tank in 6 hours while another can empty it in 2 hours. How long will it take to empty the full tank if both pipes are open at once? Let x = time to empty full tank

45
**Let x = time to empty full tank Part empty - Part fill = Total empty**

One pipe can fill a tank in 6 hours while another can empty it in 2 hours. How long will it take to empty the full tank if both pipes are open at once? Let x = time to empty full tank Part empty - Part fill = Total empty

46
**Let x = time to empty full tank Part empty - Part fill = Total empty**

One pipe can fill a tank in 6 hours while another can empty it in 2 hours. How long will it take to empty the full tank if both pipes are open at once? Let x = time to empty full tank Part empty - Part fill = Total empty

47
