i do not have math explanation but will try with words.
Remaining=1/2sleep
sleep+remaining=1/2of the trip
3/2sleep=1/2trip
2trip=6sleep then she slept 1/3 of the trip

Let the total distance be 6 miles.

When the passenger started sleeping, remaining distance was 3miles.

When she woke up,

distance she slept + remaining distance = 3 miles

from thequestion, remaining distance = 1/2 distance she slept

hence, distance she slept + 1/2 distance she slept = 3

distanceshe slept = 2 miles which is 2/6 hence 1/3
