# Mitchell left Detroit on the interstate driving south towards Orlando at a speed of 60 miles per hour. Clark left Detroit 1 hour later traveling at a speed of 75 miles per hour, following the same route as Mitchell. How long will it take Clark to catch Mitchell?

It would take Clark 4 hours to catch Mitchell

Speed is the ratio of total distance travelled to total time taken. It is given by:

Speed = distance / time

Let d represent the distance at which Clark catches Mitchell. Also, t should represent the time.

For Mitchell:

60 = d/t

d = 60t

Clark left Detroit 1 hour later. Hence:

75 = d/(t - 1)

d = 75t - 75

60t = 75t - 75

15t = 75

t = 5 hours

t - 1 = 5 - 1 = 4 hours

It would take Clark 4 hours to catch Mitchell

What is the slope of Y=0?

The slope is 0!! any horizontal line, like y = 1, y = 2, y = any other number, has a slope of 0. because it's a horizontal line, it's flat, so there isn't any incline or decline. just as a note: vertical lines (x = 1, etc.) have an undefined slope.

If i buy 3.5 meters of ribbon how many laces can i make if i need 15.5 cm per each lace

1 meter = 100 cm
So 3.5*100=350 cm
Next divide 350 by the 15.5 cm and you should get 22.580 and so on, however you are only required to find how many you can make (the whole number) so therefore the answer is
22
(If you do need to add the decimal it’s either 22.58 or 22.6 or 22.50
