1st pump

2nd pump

Together

A sump pump can pump water out of a basement in twelve hours. If a second pump is added, the job would only take six and two-thirds hours. How long would it take the second pump to do the job alone?

Distance, Rate and Time Problems

If you drive at a constant speed of 65 miles per hour and you travel for 2 hours, how far did you drive?

5.6 – Applications

A car travels six hundred miles in the same time a motorcycle travels four hundred and fifty miles. If the car’s speed is fifteen miles per hour faster than the motorcycle’s, find the speed of both vehicles.
