The children were on a school trip to the mountain . One third of the journey went by the train and continue by bus. When you get off the bus, they remained a third of the distance they traveled by bus. What part of journey children went by the bus (wrote as decimal and as fraction)?

Correct result:

x =  0.5


s=? km 13s+xs+x3s=s 13+x+x3=1 x=0.5=12 


4x = 2

x = 12 = 0.5
