(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Through a combination of sight, sound, and smell a rabbit can detect a fox at 60 meters. When the rabbit detects the fox, it runs immediately straight to its hole. If the fox can run twice as fast as the rabbit, what is the maximum distance from its hole that a rabbit can safely venture? Assume that the rabbit escapes if they arrive at the hole at the same time.

2. The attempt at a solution

2x + 60 = x

x = 60

Apparently this is incorrect
