    First, find how many hours she's going to be spending. \[\large \sf Hours~per~day \times Number~of~days~=~Total~number~of~hours\] And imagine there are spaces between the words because latex is acting up /:

    How many days are there? How many hours is she hiking per day?

    Its going to be 8 days & she will be hiking 8.25 hours during those 8 days . so your saying I should multiply 8.25× 8 ?

    Ok, good. Now all that's left is to find the miles per hour (what the question is looking for). We can find this with the formula \[\bf Number~of~hours \times Miles~per~hour~=~Number~of~miles\]

    So it should be 66 times 82.5 then ????

    We're looking for the Miles per hour. We already know what the number of miles is.

    I was making dinner sorry. I am back now @Halia . \[\bf Number~of~hours \times Miles~per~hour~=~Number~of~miles\] can be converted to \[\bf Miles~per~hour~=~\frac{Number~of~miles}{Number~of~hours}\]
