Let t represent time in hours, using t=0 to represent the time Greg set out.
At time t 0 Anthony will have travelled 50(t+2) miles and Greg 65t miles.
Greg will catch up with Anthony when 65t=50(t+2)
65t=50(t+2)=50t+100
Subtract 50t from both ends to get:
15t=100
Divide both sides by 15 to get
t = 100 15 = 90 15 + 10 15 = 6 + 2 3 = 6 hours, 40 minutes.

Define Absolute system of Linear Equations?
asked 2022-02-24
During some computations I came up with the following system of linear recurrences:
Bn+2=3Bn+An
An=An1+Bn1
Here I am trying to find the solution for B (hoping to get some sort of homogeneous equation, find it roots and get the closed form formula).
But I can't solve it. The only thing I can do is
Bn+2=3Bn+i=0n1Bi,
which will not help me to solve recurrence. So is there a way I can find B without the summation through n?

How do I craft a linear equation so that it is in the form of ax+bx+c=0 where a2+b2=1 if I have two points? I know how to get it into the form ax+bx+c=0 but I can't figure out the algorithm for satisfying the second condition.
