In a canoe race, a team paddles downstream 560 meters in 70 seconds. The same team makes the trip back upstream to the starting point in 80 seconds. How do you write a system of two equations in two variables that models this problem?
In the equations above
# T_1 xx (p + c ) = T_2 xx ( p - c)
This is a problem involving relative velocity.The canoe moves faster while moving downstream.Let's denote
With these 2 equations values for
