First correct answer gets the airtime

(a) Given:
Speed for the journey = 380 km
Total time taken for the journey = 4hours

The journey was in two parts.
First part of the journey was on the motorway and the second part was on the country road

Let x and y represents the distance and time taken respectively for the journey in the first part (on the motorway);
Therefore, the speed on the motorway is calculated as x รท y = 110 km/h
x = 110y ...... Eqn 1

To get equation 2, let's find the expression for speed on the country road
Distance on the country road = 380km - x
Time spent on the country road = 4hrs - y
Therefore, the speed on the country road = (380 - x) / (4- y) = 70km/h,
380 - x = 70(4 -y),
380 - x = 280 - 70y,
380 - 280 = x - 70y,
x - 70y = 100 ....Eqn 2

Therefore, these are the simultaneous equations
x = 110y ...Eqn 1
x - 70y = 100 ...Eqn 2



(b) Solving the equations;
Sub for x in eqn 2 using eqn 1,
x - 70y = 100,
110y - 70y = 100
40y = 100
y = 100/40 = 2.5 hours

sub for y in eqn 1,
x = 110y,
x = 110 (2.5),
x = 275km
Therefore the distance covered on the motorway is 275km
