We know it's going to be a great day when Star Wars Day aligns with Word Problem Wednesday! Give our word problem a try—we'll update with the answer tomorrow!
General Leia is flying a T-47 Airspeeder to Echo Base at 650 kilometers per hour, and Han Solo is flying a T-65B X-Wing Starfighter to Echo Base at 1,250 kilometers per hour. If Han is 78 kilometers away and Leia is 39 kilometers away, then who will reach Echo Base first?
Update: Here's the solution!
Leia reaches Echo Base first. Han has exactly twice as far to go to Echo Base, but his X-Wing is less than twice as fast as Leia's Snowspeeder.
