I swear to the universe I have copied these word for word from my Intermediate Algebra textbook.
23. Agents Mulder and Scully are driving to Georgia to investigate "Big Blue," a giant aquatic reptile reported to inhabit one of the local lakes. Mulder leaves Washington at 8:30 AM and averages 65 mph. His partner, Scully, leaves at 9:00 AM, following the same path and averaging 68 mph. At what time will Scully catch up with Mulder?
24. Lois and Clark are covering separate stories and have to travel in opposite directions. Lois leaves the Daily Planet at 8:00 AM and travels at 35 mph. Clark leaves at 8:15 AM and travels at 40 mph. At what time will they be 140 mi apart?
It's really 23's stunning detail that gets me.
