1 Systems of Linear Equations A Practical Approach to Problem Solving

2 What if… Two trains run on parallel tracks. The first tra9in leaves a city ½ hour before the second train. The first train travels a 55 m/h. The second train travels at 65 m/h. How long does it take for the second train to pass the first train?

3 …but I dont ride trains… Suppose you and a friend are going to the beach, but you leave an hour after your friend does. You are also driving 15m/h faster than your friend. How long will it take you to catch up with her?

4 Ok…traveling- what else? You want a new cell phone plan. One company charges $30 for the line and then $0.25 a minute. The other company charges $45 for the line and $0.15 a minute. How many minutes do you have to talk for the two total prices to be equal?4

5 Problem Solving Systems of Linear Equations help you solve the previous three problems and many, many more!
