Q:
# In four days, your family drives 5/7 of a trip. your rate of travel is the same throughout the trip. the total trip is 1250 miles. in how many more days will you reach your destination?

Accepted Solution

A:

You'll reach destination in 1.6 days or rounded to 2 days.

->calculate how much did you pass already 1250Γ5/7=892 miles traveled (rounded)

->then calculate how much miles you have to go

1250-892=358 miles left to travel

->then calculate speed at which you travel

892/4(how much days you traveled already)=223miles per day

->then just divide miles left with speed

358/223=1.6 or 2 days left to reaching destination.
