Ms. Maguire, your online tutor for algebra 1

Here's an example of how I showed a student how to solve this algebra word problem:

Two cyclists, 84 miles apart, start riding toward each other at the same time.  One cycles two times as fast as the other.  If they meet 4 hours later, what is the speed (in mi/h) of the faster cyclist?

a. Write an equation using the information as it is given above that can be solved to answer this problem.  Use the variable r  to represent the speed of the slower cyclist.

b. What is the speed of the faster cyclist?  ____ mi/hr

2.  Say hello to me in the chat box to check if I'm available. If I don't respond right away, please try again in a little bit.  (I can only serve one student at a time).  Or if you want to leave me your U.S. mobile number, I'll text you as soon as I get a chance.

#### Is this a good resource for taking tests?

No, this math tutor chat is not appropriate for tests.  That would be cheating.  We prepare for tests by studying and practicing.  Use this website for homework, practice, and sample problems.
