# Papa drove at an average speed of 30 mph to the airport. He boarded a helicopter and travel at 60 mph to the corporate office. The entire distance was 150 miles and took 3 hours. what was he distance from the airport to the office?

I initially found this by guessing:

What if he spent an hour driving to the airport then two hours flying?

Let (x) represent the distance traveled at 30 mph (from the airport to the helicopter boarding point).

Then, the remaining distance from the helicopter boarding point to the corporate office would be (150 - x) miles.

Using the formula:

[ \text{time} = \frac{\text{distance}}{\text{speed}} ]

We can set up the equation based on the given information:

[ \frac{x}{30} + \frac{150 - x}{60} = 3 ]

Solving this equation will give us the value of (x), which represents the distance from the airport to the helicopter boarding point. Then, the distance from the helicopter boarding point to the corporate office would be (150 - x).
