So, let's give it a little thought, then write out a little line graph with points or boxes that each represent a stop.

Fill in the times between stops given.

For the first part, mark each box or point with the stop time given.

Now, it's easy to visualize how to add these up for total trip time, right?

The next part is a bit more difficult. Now, change each stop time to a variable x we will need to solve for by creating an equation for the new total trip time. By solving for x, you will know the time spent at each stop.

Please contact me with any questions or to schedule a lesson.

Thanks!
