Ryan and Janelle are each driving from a different location to meet. When they each stopped for lunch at 12 noon, they called each other on their cell phones. Ryan had traveled miles in hours. Janelle had driven miles in hours.

If Ryan and Janelle were originally miles apart when they had started driving that morning, at what time will they meet?

For each driver, find the speed they traveled by dividing the miles they had driven by the amount of time they had been driving.

Janelle had been driving at 65 miles per hour, since miles divided by 4 hours is equal to miles in each hour. Can you find Ryan's speed?

Write an equation to find the time () until they have traveled miles total. Their rates of travel should be coefficients of .
