Sorry, I don't understand how you get 3.75.
Annika has hiked 2.75 km during 33 minutes (if her constant speed is 1km every 12 min). So when she realizes she has to go back, she has 45-33= 12 minutes left. It leaves her the time to advance for another 6 minutes (0,5 km). The time to go back would be 39 minutes for all the distance (2.75+0,5 = 3.25 km). My answer was C (but apparently wrong). Could you please explain what I am doing wrong? thanks

I'm with you YulSob on this one, I've tried various approaches and continue to come up with C as the answer...where's Bunuel when we need him? :)

Actually the correct answer is C) 3.25 km. This problem is from the manhattan word strategy guides and apparently there is a type that i wanted to confirm. Sorry for the trouble caused.
My solution is as under;
Set up two R x T =D cases.
1. 1/12 km/ min x T = 2.75

from which T= 33 mins.

We know total journey time now is 45 +33 =78.
The rate is the same ie 1/12km/min.

set up second R x T =D case.

1/12 km/min x 78 = 6.5 km
Now the total journey would be halved as distance would be same in each direction. 6.5/2 =3.25.

A slightly different way of solving with just one equation.
Assume the distance to be travelled further east =x

Now in another 45 min, Annika would travel 2x + 2.75 km at a speed of 1/12 km/min.

Putting in a RTD equation
2x+2.75=45/12
x=0.5
x+2.75=3.25

Hello Everyone,


You do not need to know that she already hiked during 33 minutes to find out the solution.

We know that she already hiked 2.75km.

She hikes one kilometer in 12 minutes, so she hikes at 5 km/h. She has 45 minutes left. So she can walk 5*(45/60) = 3.75 more kilometers.

She would have walked 2.75 + 3.75 = 6.50 km. Since the way up is as long as the way down, she hiked 6.5/2 = 3.25km

A's rate is 5kph
in 3/4 hour she hikes 3.75k
let d=distance from 2.75 miles east of start to turnaround point
2d+2.75=3.75k
d=.5k
.5k+2.75k=3.25k total distance hiking east

Since Annika has already hiked 2.75 km if she were to turn around at that moment it would take her 33 minutes to return home. She has 45 minutes to return home. 45-33=12. She needs half of that time to return. So if you split the remaining 12 minutes in half (one half travel east, one half return home) she has 6 additional minutes to walk east which is .5 km. So 2.75+.5=3.25 km.

Lemme try explaining how I solved the question.

A can hike 1 kms in 12 minutes. So in 45 minutes she can hike 3.75 kms.

No she has hiked 2.75 kms when she realized that she has to return to the starting point.

Basically, she has to cover 3.75 kms in 45 mins. Since she has already hiked 2.75 Kms and this distance has to be covered on her way back in those 45 minutes, she is left with only 3.75-2.75= 1 km. And in this 1 km, she has to travel towards east and then return i.e. she will cover .5 kms to the east and .5kms return distance.

So she traveled total of 2.75+.5= 3.25 kms towards east

C is the answer

Here's my explaination

Annika covered

1km in 12 mins
2km in 24 mins
3km in 36 mins
4km in 48 mins

She travelled 83.3mts/min (1000mts/12mins)

83.3*3 = 249.9mts

In 45 mins she travelled 4 - 2.49 = 3.75.

A) 2.25
B) 2.75
C) 3.25
D) 3.75
E) 4.25


The answer is C
Total distance traveled in 45 min = 45*1/12=15/4=3.75
Now this 3.75 contains 2.75 and the distance x that she traveled when she realized that she had to go back in 45 min.
Now this x distance is covered twice in 45 min minutes once due east and once while returning .
So 2x+2.75=3.75
2x=1 therefore x=0.5
Now total distance hiked due east =2.75+0.5=3.25
