Analyzing One-Variable Inequalities in Context

Analyzing One-Variable Inequalities in Context 1.2 - Solution

arrow_back Return to Analyzing One-Variable Inequalities in Context
Let's recall the formula that describes the relation between distance, speed and time. d=st\begin{gathered} d=st \end{gathered} Since we are asked for the speed, let's isolate s.s. s=dt s=\frac{d}{t} The family Humphrey needs to get there before the hotel is closed to be able to check in. Thus, the speed has to be greater than the distance divided by time. s>dt s\gt\frac{d}{t} We should now substitute the distance with 250250 and the time with 5.5.
s>dts\gt\dfrac{d}{t}
s>2505s>\dfrac{250}{5}
s>50s \gt 50
The solution s>50s \gt 50 means the family should travel at a speed greater than 5050 mph.
