Now i haven't done these distance problems for a while and i just decided to see if i can approach it with a crude or unconventional way of solving the problem. so i want to know if my method is on crack or another way to say it, is it plain insane. thank u

so here is what i did...i imediately moved point A to point B then i minus the distance that was between them.12-6=6 the 8 is over by 2..so i think the car has not caught up yet. then i...12/60=.2 of a mile per min(60)...2x5=1...1.mile= 5min..16x5=80min.i get the 16 from the original 8milesx2(2sets)so 80min=1.20min..

solution 1.20min..

so what do u think?lol
