TRIATHLONS Irena is training for an upcoming triathlon and plans to run 12 miles today. Jorge offered to ride his bicycle to help her maintain her pace. If Irena wants to keep a steady pace of 6.5 minutes per mile, how fast should Jorge ride in miles per hour?

Thank you so much for helping.

6.5minutes per mile= xminutes per hour
