Cross multiply and solve for x.

(1/6)/2 = 2/x

How can that be? Don't you think it would take her much longer than 2 minutes to run 2 miles?

1/6x = 4

x = 4 / (1/6)

x = 4 * 6

x = _______ minutes

24 minutes.

But I don't get what x means in 1/6x = 4

x is the unknown number of minutes it will take her to run 2 miles.

Yes, 24 minutes is correct.
