A baby rabbit moves 5 inches forward with each hop and his mother moves 14 inches forward with each hop. After the mother and baby each hop 10 hops in the same direction, the mother stops and waits for her baby to catch up. How many hops does the baby have to take to catch up?
5 inches x 10 hops= 50 inches
14 inches x 10 hops= 140 inches
140 inches-50 inches= 90 inches
so, the baby has to travel 90 more inches to catch up to his mom, if he travels 5 inches per hop, how many more will it take??
Hopefully you can continue from here, if not let me know.
