Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Since cyclist 1 goes 20 feet in 2 seconds, this ratio can be simplified to 10 feet in 1 sec. then cyclist two goes 60 feet in 5 seconds. Although this ratio is slightly trickier to solve, if you divide 60 by 5, you get 12. therefore, for every one second, cyclist 2 travels 12 feet in 1 sec. Hope this explanation made sense! Well done :) @Foxythepirate0984
