Leroy ran a total of 15 miles last month. He ran 5/8 miles each day. How days did he run?

• math -

Here's the way I (not a math teacher) figure out this problem.

If Leroy ran a mile a day, he'd run for 15 days. But he ran less than a mile a day, so he must have run more than 15 days.

What can you do with those numbers to get an answer between 15 and 31?
