Q:
# imagine you live only one mile from work and you decide to walk. if you walk four miles per hour, how long will it take you to walk one mile?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:the distance to work is 1 mile and you can walk at 4 miles per hour, then you can walk 1 mile in ¼ hr = 15 minutesStep-by-step explanation:Dylan, If the distance to work is 1 mile and you can walk at 4 miles per hour, then you can walk 1 mile in ¼ hr = 15 minutes. To set up the "equation" think about it this way: (1 mile/ t) = (4 mile/ 1 hr) so 1/t = 4/1 hr now multiply both sides by t to get 1 = t·(4/1 hr), next divide both sides by (4/1 hr) t = 1/(4/ 1 hr) = 1 hr/4 = ¼ hr = 15 min.
