I thought I would be able to get some homework done before I have to pick Marcy up from getting her massage, but distractions are a bitch aren't they? Maybe someone can help me, I'm taking Math 70 which is an Algebra I course. Here's my problem:
St. Louis and Portland are 2060 miles apart. A small plane leaves Portland, traveling toward St. Louis at an average speed of 90 miles per hour. Another plane leaves St. Louis at the same time, traveling toward Portland, averaging 116 miles per hour. How long will it take them to meet?
Meet?? Will they really be meeting in midair? How long will it take Mike to realize this and jump from the airplane using the plane's only parachute? That's a better question.
