Two boats departed from one pier in the opposite direction. the first boat covered 56 km, and the second one is 2 times less. What is the distance between the boats?
Let us determine the distance between the boats, after they have moved away in opposite directions, provided that the first one has sailed 56 km, and the second is 2 times less.
1) Let’s find the distance from the pier, which was passed by the 2nd boat:
56: 2 = 28 km.
2) Add the resulting value to the distance of the first boat:
56 + 28 = 84 km was the distance between the two boats.
