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

You'll reach destination in 1.6 days or rounded to 2 days.
->calculate how much did you pass already 1250Γ—5/7=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.
