**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, March 8, 2012 at 7:11pmI don't know how your son is supposed to do this.

Here's a simple algebra solution. Let x = the miles that Jan and Myra each ran.

x + x + x - 8 = 64

3x - 8 = 64

3x = 64 + 8

3x = 72

x = 72/3

x = 24

24 - 8 = 16

**Paulette**, Thursday, August 23, 2012 at 1:10amthis makes no sense to me and won't to my child either. the instructions for solving, are try 3 numbers that add to the total with 2 numbers equal and the other 8 less then revise numbers till you get the answer.
