Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Let the time taken by Jake be 't' hours

So the time taken by Elwood = t+3 hours

85t + 90 (t+3) = 970

85t+90t+270 = 970

175t = 970-270

175t = 700

 t= 700/175

  = 4

so  time taken by Elwood = 4+3 = 7hours

Please let me know if you have any questions and best me if you are satisfactory.
