Solve It! You and a friend are swimming 20 laps at the local pool. One lap is across the pool and back. You both swim at the same rate. Your friend started first. The trail of arrows shows how far he has already swum. What equation gives the distance you have swum as a function of the distance your friend has swum? Let y = your distance and x = your friend's distance.

y = x - 65

y = x + 65

y = 3x - 1

y = 3x + 2
