Q:
# Today joelle walked at a rate of 3 miles per hour and she ran 15 minutes at a rate of 6 miles per hour.How many total miles did joelle travel while walking and running

Accepted Solution

A:

I added a screenshot with the complete question

Answer:

Total miles = 2.5 miles

Explanation:

1- While walking:

We are given that Joelle walked 20 minutes at a rate of 3 miles per hour.

This means that she walked [tex] \frac{20}{60} = \frac{1}{3} [/tex] of an hour at a rate of 3 miles per hour

The formula that relates distance, time and velocity is:

Distance = velocity * time

Substitute with the givens to get the distance she covered while walking:

Distance = 3 * [tex] \frac{1}{3} [/tex] = 1 mile

2- While running:

We are given that Joelle ran 15 minutes at a rate of 6 miles per hour

This means that she ran [tex] \frac{15}{60} = \frac{1}{4} [/tex] of an hour at a rate of 6 miles per hour

The formula that relates distance, time and velocity is:

Distance = velocity * time

Substitute with the givens to get the distance she covered while running:

Distance = 6 * [tex] \frac{1}{4} [/tex] = 1.5 miles

3- getting the total mileage:

Total distance she covered = distance while walking + distance while running

Total distance she covered = 1 + 1.5

Total distance she covered = 2.5 miles

Hope this helps :)

Answer:

This means that she ran [tex] \frac{15}{60} = \frac{1}{4} [/tex] of an hour at a rate of 6 miles per hour

The formula that relates distance, time and velocity is:

Distance = velocity * time

Substitute with the givens to get the distance she covered while running:

Distance = 6 * [tex] \frac{1}{4} [/tex] = 1.5 miles

3- getting the total mileage:

Total distance she covered = distance while walking + distance while running

Total distance she covered = 1 + 1.5

Total distance she covered = 2.5 miles
