    Total gummy bears = 20*Z Let F be the number of friends she has she gave out y about to each so 20*Z-y*F= x

    okay let d be the distance tommy tavels let t be the initial time let v he the inital speed before 25% increase v=d/t t=d/v now the speed got increase bt 25% so new_v=1.25*v =5/4 v new_t=d/1.25v =d/(5v/4) =4d/5v =4/5* d/v so the new time is 4/5th of the old time 4/5 = 80% so thats a 20% decrease
