Your family is driving 188 miles to visit a family member, your father drives 63 miles then stops for a break, a) How many more miles are left in the trip, B) How long will the remainder of the trip take?
*It says to label a variable, write an equation and solve for part b.

How would I do this?

Didn't you wrote this a while back?

Yeah I did, but then I found another problem I forgot to do and I didn't understand it, I'm sorry for asking so many questions.

a) 188 - 63 = 125 miles are left
b) Without knowing how fast the father drives, and whether or not he takes more breaks, there is no way of coming up with a numerical answer
