David knew he made a mistake when he calculated that Gilda walks 123 miles to the station. Read through David's calculations:Using d = rt, the distance is the same, but the rate and time are different.If Gilda misses the train, it means the time t needs 7 more minutes so d = 3(t + 7).If she gets to the station 5 minutes early means the time t can be 5 minutes less so d = 4(t - 5).3(t + 7) = 4(t - 5)3t + 21 = 4t - 20t = 41d = rt, so d = 3(41) = 123Find David's mistake in his calculations.

We'll represent the distance as d and the time as t.

d= 3(t+7) because Gilda is 7 minutes late when travelling 3 mph

d= 4(t-5) because Gilda is 5 minutes early at 4 mph

d= 3t + 21

d= 4t -20

3t +21 =4t -20

41=t

d= 3(41) +21= 144

The distance is 144 miles.
