Question #10018

a vehicle travels from A to B in 8 sec. at a constant speed of 25 mph. A second vehicle travels the distance in 8 sec. What is the distance from A to B and how fast is the second vehicle traveling ?

Expert's answer

v=25, t=8/3600=1/450 => s=vt=25/450=1/9=0.111111111.....

So, speed of

second vehicle v'=s/(8 sec)=25 mph

So, speed of

second vehicle v'=s/(8 sec)=25 mph

Sonny25.05.12, 17:58I made a mistake in my problem. I am very sorry and appreciate your help. I need to know the speed of the second vehicle. It travels the distance in 3 sec. instead of the time I gave you for car #1.
