write a linear equation to model the situation. you have walked 4 miles on a trail. you continue to walk at a rate of 3 miles per hour for 5 hours.

please tell me how to do this!! thanks!

    You have a start point 4 miles from the origin, when this story begins.

    You then walk at a rate of speed for a specified time.

    There really isn't much equationing (which isn't a word!) to be done here, since you know your speed and time:

    Distance from start point =
    4 miles
    plus
    3 miles per hour for 5 hours

    s = 4 + 3 * 5

    thanks for the help! :)
