please help!!!

OpenStudy (anonymous):

d=rt 200=(s+10)(t-1)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

d=rt 200=rt

OpenStudy (anonymous):

200= rt-r+10t-10 200=200-r+10t-10 200=190-r+10t

200-190=-r+10t 10=-r+10t

OpenStudy (anonymous):

r=10t-10

OpenStudy (anonymous):

200= (r+10)(t-1) 200=(10t-10+10)(t-1) we have substituted r

OpenStudy (anonymous):

200=(10t)(t-1) 200=10t^2-10t 0=10t^2-10t-200 which we can factorise

OpenStudy (anonymous):

0=10(t^2-t-20) 0=t^2-t-20 0=(t-5)(t+4) t=5 t=-4

OpenStudy (anonymous):

now we find the speed =distance/time =200/5= 40mil/hr
