Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0let v be her "normal" velocity and s be the distance to work s = v * (2/3) s = (v+12) * (1/3) divide the equations and get (v+12) = 2v v = 12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since distances are the same \[v*\frac{2}{3}=(v+12)\frac{1}{3}\] \[\frac{2}{3}v=\frac{1}{3}v+4\] \[\frac{1}{3}v=4\] \[v=12\]
