After 1 hour, Linda will be 7 miles from the starting point, and Dave will be 9 miles away from that point but in the opposite direction. So they will be exactly (9+7=) 16 miles apart after 1 hour. They are moving apart at a rate of 16 mph. After 1.5 hours they will be exactly 24 miles apart.

Two cyclists start biking from a trail's start 3 hours apart The second cyclist travels at 10 miles per hour and starts 3 hours after the first cyclist who is traveling at 6 miles per hour How much?

Two cyclists start biking from a trail's start 3 hours apart. The second cyclist travels at 10 miles per hour and starts 3 hours after the first cyclist who is traveling at 6 miles per hour. How much time will pass before the second cyclist catches up with the first from the time the second cyclist started biking? A. 2 hoursB. 4 ½ hoursC. 5 ¾ hoursD. 6 hoursE. 7 ½ hours AnswerThe distance the 1st cyclist travels is 6(3+t) miles, andthe distance the 2nd cyclist travles is 10t miles...where t=the number of hours since cyclist #2 starts.Now solve: 6(3+t)=10t ==> 18+6t=10t ==> 18=4t ==> t=4.5 hrs==> 4.5 hours = 4 hrs 30 minutes

Are Americans getting shorter in stature and why?

Not really, what really happened is that countries like the Netherlands outgrew us much faster. As an example, they went up 8 inches in average height within 150 years, while us Americans only went up about 2-3 inches (most of America's increase in height occuring during the first half of the 20th century). So when you hear about Americans getting 'shorter', they're really saying that we're no longer the tallest country in the word and have fallen behind many, many countries in the ranking of average heights per country. I think the best way to describe the reason behind our 'falling behind' in stature ranking is that although we Americans still practice great nutrition (at least far more than 60+ years ago), many European countries not only practice it better (more milk and better diet choices), but they also seem to get around more actively (i.e. biking and walking).
