How do I solve this rational equation word problem?
I’m having a very hard time figuring this out.
“Two joggers, one averaging 8mph and one averaging 6mph, start from a designated initial point. The slower jogger arrives at the end of the run a half hour after the other jogger. Find the distance of the run.
This is how I set it up.
Then, I cross multiply. I get the wrong answer though. The answer is 12 miles.
