Math help

Postby rusch_bag » Wed Apr 14, 2010 12:35 pm

I am doing a scavenger hunt and one of the clues is a math problem to where it is. What I am looking for is probably in that room number that the answer is so I was wondering if any math buffs out there could solve this for me.

Two cars leave cities 479 miles apart. One car travels at 73 mph, while the other travels at 68 mph. After how many minutes will they cross paths? (Use standard rounding procedures)

Thanks in advance.

204 minutes.

73x + 68x = 479
x ~ 3.4h

3.4 ~ 204 minutes

You have no idea how many times I checked this stupid thread to see what Chuck Kennedy posted because I figured he is good at math and had something important to say. I will never know.
