Scientists are preparing two satellites to be launched. The satellite, Space Explorer A, flies \( 14400 \) miles in \( 8 \) hours. The table below represents the number of miles, \( y \) , that the satellite, Space Explorer B, flies in \( x \) hours. 

How much faster does Space Explorer B travel per hour than Space Explorer A? 

Answer

rate of A = 14400/8 = 1800 mph

rate of B= (47600-34000)/(14-10)= 3400 mph

 

Space Explorer B is traveling at 1600 mph than Space Explorer A
