The bus route also travels through Balmorhea, which is 1/3 of the way from El Paso to San Antonio. About how long does it take the bus to get to Balmorhea?

**Mary**, Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 11:38amUse the formula:

Rate x Time = Distance traveled

Rate is always the something per something- miles per hour, meters per second, etc.

For the stop at Balmorhea, you must first figure the distance. Use the question itself for your answer.

Balmorhea IS 1/3 OF the way from EP to SA.

Is means equals, of means to multiply.

Therefore:

Balmorhea's distance = 1/3 x the total distance

Now you can plug Balmorhea's distance into the RT = D formula I gave you above.

Let me know if you need more help :-)

**Reiny**, Wednesday, September 23, 2009 at 11:46amtime for whole trip =560/60 hours = 28/3 hours

to Balmoral is 1/3 of the distance, therefore 1/3 of the total time

(1/3)((28/3) = 28/9 = 3.11111 hours or

appr. 3 hours, 7 minutes
