Rate-Time-Distance Problems

- An object is in uniform motion when it moves

without changing its speed, or rate. These

problems fall into 3 categories Motion in

opposite directions, Motion in the same

direction, Round Trip. Each is solved using a

chart, a sketch, and the distance formula.

Officer Barbrady left his home at 215 PM and had

driven 60 miles when he ran out of gas. He

walked 2 miles to a gas station, where he arrived

he walks, how fast does he walk?

Two cyclists are traveling in the same direction

on the same bike path. One travels at 10mph and

other at 12mph. After how many hours will they be

ten miles apart?

Wondering how to do that?

on the same bike path. One travels at 10mph and

other at 12mph. After how many hours will they be

ten miles apart?

Sherry and Bob like to jog in the park. Sherry

can jog at 5 mph, while Bob can jog at 7 mph. If

Sherry starts 30 minutes ahead of Bob, how long

will it take Bob to catch up to Sherry?

Let x the time it takes Bob to catch Sherry

Sherry started 30 minutes or 1/2 hour before

Bob, so her time must reflect that amount. Rate

A passenger trains speed is 60 mi/h, and a

freight trains speed is 40 mi/h. The passenger

train travels the same distance in 1.5 h less

time than the freight train. How long does each

train take to make the trip.

Freight train 4.5h. Passenger train 3h

Ali rode her bike to visit a friend. She

traveled at 10 mi/h. While she was there, it

began to rain. Her friend drove her home in a

car traveling 25 mi/h. Ali took 1.5 hours longer

to go to her friends than to return home. How

many hours did it take Ali ti ride to her

friends house?

walks. Katie rides her bike 10 km/h faster than

Jill walks. If it takes Katie 1 h. and Jill 3 h

to travel the same distance, how fast does each

travel?

At 1000 A.M., a car leaves a house at a rate of

60 mi/h. At the same time, another car leaves

the same house at a rate of 50 mi/h in the

opposite direction. At what time will the car be

330 miles apart?

Brittney begins walking ay 3 mi/h toward the

library. Her friend meets her at the halfway

point and drives her the rest of the way to the

library. The distance to the library is 4 miles.

How many hours did Marla walk?

2/3 h or 40 min.

Ryan begins walking towards Johns house at 3

mi/h. John leaves his house at the same time and

walks towards Freds house on the same path at a

rate of 2 mi/h. How long will it be before they

meet if the distance between the houses is 4

miles?

Motion problems use the equation D RT where D

is the distance traveled, R is the rate when

traveling and T is the time spent traveling.

It is helpful to use a D RT grid when

solving motion problems as shown in the following

example.

- Juan and Amal leave DC at the same time headed

south on I-95. If Juan averages 60 mph and Amal

averages 72 mph how long will it take them to be

30 miles apart? - (Now would be a good time for a guess. Write

yours down and try it in this table.)

We are looking for a time where Juan and Amal

will be 30 miles apart. How do we represent the

distance between the two men?

60x - 72x

Or is it 72x - 60x. Which of these two would be

positive?

The correct equation is 72x - 60 x 30

- The purpose of the grid is to find an algebraic

name for each distance. Notice that the distance

30 miles does not appear in the grid because

neither Juan nor Amal traveled 30 miles. Notice

also that we could use x for each time since Juan

and Amal were on the road for the same amount of

time. We will need to work 30 miles into the

equation as follows - 72x 60x 30

12x 30 - x 2.5 hrs.

Practice Problems Motion 1. Tonya and Freda

drive away from Norfolk on the same road in the

same direction. If Tonya is averaging 52 mph and

Freda is averaging 65 mph, how long will it take

for them to be 39 miles apart? 2. Tonya and

Freda drive away from Norfolk on the same road in

opposite directions. If Tonya is averaging 52 mph

and Freda is averaging 65 mph, how long will it

take for them to be 39 miles apart? Round your

answer to the nearest minute.

For worked out solutions click to next slide.

1. Tonya and Freda drive away from Norfolk on

the same road in the same direction. If Tonya is

averaging 52 mph and Freda is averaging 65 mph,

how long will it take for them to be 39 miles

apart? Let x time it takes for them to be 39

miles apart. Construct a table to put your

information in.

Tonya and Freda drive away from Norfolk on the

same road in the same direction. If Tonya is

averaging 52 mph and Freda is averaging 65 mph,

how long will it take for them to be 39 miles

apart?

We let x stand for the time they have been

driving which would be the same in this case.

How far they have gone (distance) is written in

the chart by using the known information and the

formula RTD

Tonya and Freda drive away from Norfolk on the

same road in the same direction. If Tonya is

averaging 52 mph and Freda is averaging 65 mph,

how long will it take for them to be 39 miles

apart?

Tonya and Freda are headed in the same direction

so we can picture their distances as this

52x

Tonya

39 mi

65x

Freda

Do you see the equation forming from our picture?

Tonya and Freda drive away from Norfolk on the

same road in the same direction. If Tonya is

averaging 52 mph and Freda is averaging 65 mph,

how long will it take for them to be 39 miles

apart?

52x

Tonya

39 mi

65x

Freda

One way to look at it might be to say 52x 39

65x Or another way might be to say 65x 52x

39 Both are correct and will give you the correct

answer of 3 hrs.

2. Tonya and Freda drive away from Norfolk on the

same road in opposite directions. If Tonya is

averaging 52 mph and Freda is averaging 65 mph,

how long will it take for them to be 39 miles

apart? Round your answer to the nearest minute.

Now they are going in opposite directions, but we

will begin the same way by constructing our table.

Tonya and Freda drive away from Norfolk on the

same road in opposite directions. If Tonya is

averaging 52 mph and Freda is averaging 65 mph,

how long will it take for them to be 39 miles

apart? Round your answer to the nearest minute.

As you can see the table is the same, so only the

picture of the event must change. Now it looks

3. Bernadette drove 120 miles. The first part of

the trip she averaged 60 mph, but on the second

part of the trip she ran into some congestion and

averaged 48 mph. If the total driving time was

2.2 hours, how much time did she spend at 60 mph?

The question here deals with time. Again,

lets Fill in the chart.

Bernadette drove 120 miles. The first part of the

trip she averaged 60 mph, but on the second part

of the trip she ran into some congestion and

averaged 48 mph. If the total driving time was

This time totals are given for both time traveled

and distance traveled. Thus totals dont belong

in the chart. Bernadette did not travel 2.2

hours at 60 mph nor did she travel 2.2 hours at

48 mph. She traveled 2.2 hours total at both of

those speeds. So how do we write this in the

chart. Click to observe.

Distance is again computed by formula RT D

4. Dr. John left New Orleans at 12 noon. His

drummer left at 100 traveling 9 mph faster. If

the drummer passed Dr. John at 600, what was the

average speed of each?

Now we dont know the speed. We do know

something about time. Lets see how we can fill

in the chart.

Dr. John left New Orleans at 12 noon. His drummer

left at 100 traveling 9 mph faster. If the

drummer passed Dr. John at 600, what was the

average speed of each?

The Problem

- Two trains leave Houston at the same time, one

traveling east, the other west. The first train

traveled at 50 mph and the second at 40 mph. In

how many hours will the trains be 405 miles apart?

Table

- Rate of Train 1 50 mph

- Rate of Train 2 40 mph

- Time for both trains t

50 mph

t

50t

40 mph

- Total for train 1 50t

40t

t

- Total for train 2 40 t

- Rate x time distance

The Math

- Set trains totals to equal 405 miles

This is our equation

50t40t405miles

- Add both totals

40t 50t 90t

- Divide both sides by 90

90t 405miles 90 90

- T 4.5 hours

T4.5hours

Our Answer

It will take 4.5 hours for the trains to be 405

miles apart!
