Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The answer to this is D the reason is that 1.8 x 3600 = 6480 > Where 3600 = seconds in an hour So now we convert meters into Miles Thus we divided 6480 / 1609 = 4.02 miles / hr Now we subtract talia's speed with alina's speed which comes to 4.02  2.5 = 1.5 speed difference
