How many kilometres could each person travel if they both ride the same number of kilometres each day.

How many days will each person have to ride for each common factor you found in part (a). Explain

- math -
**Steve**, Monday, October 3, 2011 at 11:42pm175 = 5*5*7

250 = 2 * 5 * 5 * 5

I assume they both plan to complete their journey in**the same**whole number of days...

The only factors in common are 5 or 25.

Using 5 days, then Anthony needs to ride 35km/day, and Sam needs to ride 50km/day

If 25 days, then A=7km/day and S=10km/day.

I'd say they take 5 days.
