On a certain day it took Bill three times as long to drive from home to work as it took Sue to drive from home to work. How many kilometers did Bill drive from home to work?

(1) Sue drove 10 kilometers from home to work, and the ratio of distance driven from home to work time to drive from home to work was the same for Bill and Sue that day.

(2) The ratio of distance driven from home to work time to drive from home to work for Sue that day was 64 kilometers per hour.

Icould solve the problem but my main idea is to get a little clarification on the wording i.e. "ratio of distance driven from home to work time to drive from home to work was the same for Bill and Sue that day" how to put this statement into a ratio and whate exactly is the literal meaning of this statement
