OMG Chrissy! Get home now. Call the police first and be safe!
OMG Becky! Someone just broke into my house. I need to get home NOW! I hope I don't run into traffic.
If I drive as fast as I can I think that I would be able to drive 5 minutes. In that 5 minutes I would get 3 kilometers closer to home.
Ok. So like Mr. Neild said, I have to do slope intercept form. I know I have to solve for X so if I do a bit of math... it would take 20 minutes to get 5 kilometers closer to home, 25 minutes to be 2 kilometers from home and 30 kilometers to be past my house by 1 kilometer.
Okie Dokie so my phone said that I was 7 km from home but I really need to get there soon. So if I subtract -17 and then divide by by -3/5 if my calculations are correct... I should get home in about 16 2/3 minutes.
Alright, I'm almost home. I'm glad there wasn't a lot of traffic. Good thing I payed attention in algebra.
Thanks to Mr. Nelid and the police, I got to get home using math before my house was robbed!
