1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Robert Service race down the frozen Mackenzie river to rendezvous with Sam McGee who lay dying in a camp. He had a team of five huskies pulling his sled at full speed for 24 hours, then 2 dogs ran off. The trip continued at 3/5 the original speed and he reached his goal 48 hours later than he would have had the full speed been maintained. If the the two fickle dogs had stayed on the job for an additional 50km, he would arrive 24 hours late instead. What distance did the trip cover? 2. Relevant equations d= vt 3. The attempt at a solution I believed the first equation was d = (v x 24) + (3/5v x 48) and d+50 = v x 24, isolated the two d and solved for the original speed, however my teacher told me I was way off. I am not quite sure of how to approach this question, and any help would be greatly appreciated.
