Jim Williamson began a 96-mile bicycle trip to build up stamina for a triathlete competition.Unfortunately, his bicycle chain broke, so he finished the trip walking. The whole trip took 6 hours.If Jim walks at a rate of 4 miles per hour and rides at 20 miles per hour, find the amount of time he spent on the bicycle.

**Reiny**, Saturday, April 14, 2012 at 7:41pmtime on bike = t hrs

time walking = 9-t hrs

distance on bike = 20t miles

distance walking = 4(9-t) mile

20t + 4(9-t) = 96

solve for t
