After spending 2 hours at the library they return home pedaling at the same rate they did in the morning. Laura arrives home at 11:48 a.m. What s the distance between Pam's house and the library?

  • math -

    Use the distance formula:

    distance = rate times time

    or in short D = rt.

    Set up a chart and then use the formula.

    Got it?

    If not, write back.
