I love math, and I love to teach it.

Dear Ryan,

Do a quick drawing showing the plane's flight to and from Las Vegas, and label the information:

Question: How long did it take to get to Las Vegas?

432mi/h

.__________________> to Las Vegas The number of miles going=number of miles returning

480 mi/h

<_________________ from Las Vegas

Then make a table:

**rate * time = Distance**

Plane

(longer flight) 432 mi/h * t =

**432t= 4320 mi**(shorter flight) 480 mi/h * 9 hours = 480 (9)=4320 mi

**432t=4,320**Just solve for "t," and you have your answer.

t=_________hours

If I have helped you, please give me a thumbs up.
