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

Two cars start at the same time from the same place and travel along the same road. Car A has a constant speed of 50mph. Car B travels with the constant speed V for 100 miles, then stops to rest for a time, T, then travels again with constant speed V for another 100 miles. Assume V is greater than 50mph.

2. Relevant equations

I was trying to set up the equations but have trouble with it but here is what I have so far.

Car A= 50mph

Car B= Vmph + 100miles

3. The attempt at a solution

I got stuck at trying to come up with algebraic expressions.
