Doug biked

Doug biked 5 1/4 miles in 3/4 of an hour. What is his average speed?

Result

a =  7 mil/h

Solution:

s=5+14=214=5.25 mil t=3/4=34=0.75 h  a=s/t=5.25/0.75=7=7  mil/h s = 5 + \dfrac{ 1 }{ 4 } = \dfrac{ 21 }{ 4 } = 5.25 \ mil \ \\ t = 3/4 = \dfrac{ 3 }{ 4 } = 0.75 \ h \ \\ \ \\ a = s/t = 5.25/0.75 = 7 = 7 \ \text{ mil/h }



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
