Anthony plans to ride 175 km on his bike and Samantha plans to ride 250 km. They both plan to complete their journeys in a whole number of days.

a) How many kilometers could each person travel if they both ride the same number of kilmeters each day?

b) Howmany days will each person have to ride for each common factor you found in part (a)? Explain.

  • math -

    The greatest common factor of 175 and 250 is 25.

    175/25 = ?

    250/25 = ?

    Take it from there.

  • math -

    So..175/25 = 7
    and 250/25=25

    So, anthony travels 7 km a day and sam travels 25 km. each day.

  • math -

    for part b do I times 7 & 25 by 7 days?

  • math -

    The problem states that they each ride the same number of kilometers a day. How many km is that?

  • math -

    25 km'

  • math -

    Right. They each ride 25 km per day.

    b) How many days will each person have to ride for each common factor you found in part (a)? Explain.
