You mean phantom. I still like the movie.

No, that would be "fantom", not fandom.

Fandom? I love that movie, "Fandom of the Opera!" Emmy Rossum is DDG.

It is. You, on the other hand, underestimate the fandom.

Quidditch? I thought that was fictional.

Americans have quidditch? I thought it was in the UK only. Will they ever join the interscholar turnaments?

Hi Bob;

Not exactly, just passing through.

Hi;

I only drove through Texas once and was never in Colorado City, I was close by in Sweetwater though.

Well, it was easy for me, as I remember that trip well.  My sister was still doing her hair or something when I set off.  As you can see, she drives somewhat recklessly, with only a nice hair do and a winning smile to protect her from an angry state policeman.  smile

Hi anonimnystefy;

how far were Bob and his sister from Amarillo when she caught up to him?

You are correct I did not read that part of the problem. Very good!

ohh! I get it Bob! I was confused on how you plug in the second equation, because I kept plugging in 75x - 5. Thank you all for helping me! big_smile

hi infinitebrain,

I always like to draw a distance / time graph for these questions.  see below.

Say the distance from Colorado when she overtakes is D miles and T hours after Bob starts.

Once you have worked out D, don't forget to give the answer from Amarillo.
