*t*be the number of hours June drives.25. Solve the equation and answer the question.

Chart I made

r x t = d

June 60 x t = 60t

Carlos 82 x t+2 = 82(t+2)

I am stuck there too.

CHALLENGE PROBLEM

**The total of Xanthe's, Yarrow's, and Zeke's ages is 51. Five years from now Yarrow will be the same age as Zeke is now. Six years ago, Yarrow's age was half of Xanthe's age. How old is each now?**

Xanthe Now= x

Xanthe Before=???

Yarrow= y

Yarrow in 5 years= y+5=z

Zeke=z

Zeke 6 yrs ago= y-6=1/2(z-6)

Ages: x+y+z=51

I am stuck from here too.
