A commuter train leaves the Metro transit station at precisely 10:00 AM. You intend to board the same train at the next stop in Whistleville, located 14 miles away from the Metro transit station. The average speed of the commuter train is 35 mph. It takes you five minutes to walk from your apartment to the platform in Whistleville. What time should you leave the apartment in order to arrive at the platform at the same time as the train? Show all of your work in the space below to receive full credit.
train starting point at metro station = 10 AM
distance between metro station amd whistvilla = 14 miles
average speed = 35 mph
time requird to move from apartment to platform in whistvilla = 5 mintues
v = d/t
t = d/v
t = 14 miles / 35 mph
t = 2/5 hours or 0.4 hours
t = 0.4 h x 60 = 24 minutes
