a)$y=4x-6$ and $y=3x-1$ b) Please see the graph. (5,14) c) The intersection point is meaningful. We know that after five hours, both hikers will be 14 miles from the start of the trail.
Work Step by Step
a) $y=4x-6$ and $y=3x-1$ x = hours walking y = distance from start of trail b) $4x-6 = 3x-1$ $4x-6-3x+6 = 3x-1-3x+6$ $x = 5$ $4x-6=y$ $4*5 -6=y$ $20-6= y$ $14=y$
