Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Let x = time of travel to appointment
then, x + 1/5 = time of return trip
Distance going = 60x
Distance returning = 50(x+1/5)
Distance going = Distance returning
60x = 50(x+1/5)
60x = 50x + 10
10x = 10
x = 1 hour
therefore, distance traveled to appoint is
60(1) = 60 miles
Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
