A boat and a plane leave from each of their ports going in the same direction at the same time. They are traveling at different speeds, but both the plane and the boat maintain their own consistent speed and direction. After a few minutes, the boat is 6 miles away from its port and the plane is 100 miles away from its port. How many miles will the plane be from its port when the boat is 54 miles away from its port?

    900 miles will the plane be from its port when the boat is 54 miles away from its port

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given data

    boat away = 6 miles

    plane away = 100 miles

    to find out

    How many miles will plane be from port when boat 54 miles away from its port

    solution

    first we consider x distance while plane travel and boat travel 54 miles

    from question given the equation will be

    boat away from its port / plane away from its port = boat away from its port / plane away from its port

    54 / x = 6/100

    solve this equation

    6 * (x) = 54 * 100

    x = 54 * 100 / 6

    x = 900

    so 900 miles will the plane be from its port when the boat is 54 miles away from its port
