I biked 3/8 the distance from my school to my home. If I have 10 miles to go, how many miles have I gone.

My answer is, 24 miles, am I correct.

Thanks

  • Jr. Math -

    let the total distance be x

    x - (3/8)x = 10
    8x - 3x = 80
    5x=80
    x=16

    total distance is 16
    He went (3/8)16 = 6

    So he went 6 miles
