Section 5.6 Solve the following word problems

6. Number problem. If one-half of one integer is subtracted from three-fifths of the next consecutive integer the difference is 3. What are the two integers?

Solution: Assuming the first integer is .
Then, the equation to be solved is .

The first integer is 24 and the next integer is 25.

18. A passenger train can travel 325mi in the same time a freight train takes to travel 200mi. If the speed of the passenger train is 25 mi/h faster than the speed of the freight train, fin the speed of each.

Solution: Assuming the speed of the freight train is .
Then, the equation to be solved is .

Then, the speed of the freight train is 40 mi/h and the passenger train is 65 mi/h.

22. Ariana took 2 h longer to drive 360mi on the first day of a trip than she took to drive 270 mi on the second day. If her speed was the same on both days, what was the driving time each day?

Solution: Assuming the speed of the driving time for the second day is .
Then, the equation to be solved is .

Then, on the first day the driving time is 8 h and the second day is 6 h.

26. A plane flies 720 mi against a steady 30-mi/h headwind and then returns to the same point with the wind. If the entire trip takes 10 h, what is the plane's speed in still air?

Solution: Assuming the speed is .
Then, the equation to be solved is .

The speed must be positive. Then, the speed is 150 mi/h.

34. Kevin earned \$165 interest for 1 year on an investment of \$1500. At the same rate, what amount of interest would be earned by an investment of \$2500?

Solution: Assuming the earned interest by an investment of 2500 is .
Then, the equation to be solved is .

Kevin earned \$275 interest if he invests \$2500.

5.1

22)

= (-10/15)(a^3 /a)(b^2 / b^4)(c^3 /c)

= (-2/5)(a^2 c^2)/(b^2)

34)

= (3x - 2)(2x + 1)/(3x - 2)(x - 1)

= (2x + 1)/(x - 1)

46)

= (2x + 3)(2x + 3)/(2x + 3)

= 2x + 3

5.2

20)

= [a(a + b) * (2a - 3b)(2a + 3b)] / [(a + b)(2a - 3b) * a(5a - 4b)]

= (2a + 3b)/(5a - 4b)

36)

= [16x/{4(x - 2)(x + 2)}] / [4(x - 6)/{(x - 6)(x + 2)}]

= [4x/{(x - 2)(x + 2)}] * [(x + 2)/4]

= x/(x - 2)

46)

Please check and clarify if the first numerator and the second denominator are correct.

5.3

28)

= (y + 2 - 4y - 8)/3

= (-3y - 6)/3

= -3(y + 2)/3

= -y - 2

34)

= (3b - 8 + b - ...
