Charlie and Chang start at the same point and drive in opposite directions. Charlie drives 44 mph and Chang drives 46 mph. How far apart will they be in 2 hours?

**Distance = rate x time**

**Charlie**

D = rt {distance = rate x time}

D = 44(2) {substituted given information into distance formula}

D =

**88 miles**{multiplied}

**Chang**

D = rt {distance = rate x time}

D = 46(2) {substituted given information into distance formula}

D =

**92 miles**{multiplied}

**Charlie and Chang's combined distance**

= 88 + 92 {added the distances, they are driving in opposite directions}

=

**180 miles**{added}
