Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is very simple; we are trying to find how many hours she rode in total today, so our formula is : Miles / miles per hour For example, if she rode 25 miles in the day, going at a constant speed of 12 we would divide 25 by 12 we would find out that she rode 2.1 hours. (2.08, but I estimated)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That means what you need to do is divide the miles by the mph earlier that day, and then add it up with the later of the day. Miles / mph + Miles / mph = hours

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So, so far we know that our equation is Miles / mph + 24 / 15 = hours

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I never payed attention to formulas as a kid o.o I always just did it logically in my head.... I would always studder when teacher asked to write out my work because I did it all mentally lol.
