Was Jake's average running speed for the first hour of his 26-mile marathon 11 miles per hour?
(1) He ran the entire 26 miles in 2.5 hours
(2) He ran the last 15 miles in 1.5 hours
Will you explain pls?
i think i am missing something here but here is why I answered C:
total distance = 26
total time = 2.5 hours
last 15 miles took 1.5 hours, remaining (26-15) 11 miles must have taken (2.5-1.5) = 1 hour.
I am little confused. let me know if any.
