Hi,

I think
"ratio of distance driven from home to work time to drive from home to work was the same for Bill and Sue that day"
means that


( D(S) / T(S) ) = ( D(B) / T(B) )

where
D(S) -> Distance traveled by Sue from Home to work
D(B) -> Distance traveled by Bill from Home to work
T(S) -> Time taken by Sue to travel from Home to work
T(B) -> Time taken by Bill to travel from Home to work
