Homework Help: Math

Posted by Stella on Saturday, October 3, 2009 at 1:50am.

Hello, I have trouble doing this problem:
Sarah can bicycle a loop around the north part of Lake Washington in 2 hours and 40 minutes. If she could increase her average speed by 1km/hr, it would reduce her time around the loop by 6 minutes. How many kilometers long is the loop?

So this is what I attempted to do:
I change the 2hours 40 min to 160 mins
then i tried changing it to hours which was 2.6666667
and i tried to plug it in
d=r*t
but then i got confused..please help me =)
