Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Hint...if it covers 1.6m in (1/2) seconds...then in 10 seconds at the same speed it will cover (x) It's a proportion \[\large \frac{1.6m}{0.5s} = \frac{x}{10s}\] and solve for 'x'

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Not quite...when we cross multiply we get [\[\large 10\times 1.6 = 0.5x\] \[\large 16 = 0.5x\] What would 'x' be?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Not right again :/ \[\large 16 = 0.5x\] ^ "One half of SOME number = 16*
