The Train Ride

Tom wants to take the new train from Chicago to New York, a distance of 790 miles.

Statement of Problem

The New train---

790 miles

--- is 1.5 times faster than the old one that could travel at 120 mph.

How long will it take Tom to get to New York on the new train?

Set-up for Solving
• The new train is 1.5 times faster than the old one that could travel at 120 mph. So--
• Then use a proportion:

180 mi. 790 mi.

1 hr. N hr.

Old train: 120 mph

=

New train: 1.5 x 120 =180mph

Solution

180 miles 790 miles

1 hour N hours

1(790) = 180 N

790/180 = N

N= 4.389 hrs

or 4 hrs, 23 minutes

=

.389 x 60 min = 23.348 min
