# Solve the math problem
James drove 2/6th of the way to work in 8 minutes. How much longer will it take to get to work

Accepted Solution

A:

To determine how much longer James will take to get to work, we need to know the total time it takes him to complete the entire journey.
However, based on the information provided, we can calculate the portion of the journey he has already completed and the time it took him.
James drove 2/6th of the way to work in 8 minutes. This means he has completed 2/6th of the journey in 8 minutes.
To find out how much longer it will take him to complete the remaining 4/6th of the journey, we can set up a proportion:
(2/6) / 8 = (4/6) / x
Cross-multiplying, we get:
2/6 * x = 4/6 * 8
2x/6 = 32/6
Multiply both sides by 6:
2x = 32
Divide both sides by 2:
x = 16
Therefore, it will take James an additional 16 minutes to complete the remaining 4/6th of the journey and reach his workplace.
