Yeah I did, but then I found another problem I forgot to do and I didn't understand it, I'm sorry for asking so many questions.

a) 188 - 63 = 125 miles are left

b) Without knowing how fast the father drives, and whether or not he takes more breaks, there is no way of coming up with a numerical answer
