Jean jogged for 2 miles and then walked for 3 miles. Took her 1 1/3 hours. If she jogged twice as fast as she walked, what was her walking rate?

  • algebra -

    x = walking rate

    Time = Distance/Rate

    4/3 = 2/2x + 3/x

    Multiply both sides by x

    4/3x = 1 + 3

    You can take it from there.
