Two jets leave an airport at the same time, flying in opposite directions. The first jet is traveling at three hundred seventy-seven mph and the other at two hundred seventy-five mph. How long will it take for the jets to be 9128 miles apart?
My Effort:
Jet 1:
rate = 377 mph
time = x
Distance = 9128 miles
Jet 2:
rate = 275 mph
time = x
Distance = 9128 miles
Equation:
377x + 275x = 9128
Is this correct?
