Ilya and Anya each can run at a speed of 7.80 and walk at a speed of 3.20 . They set off together on a route of length 5.00 . Anya walks half of the distance and runs the other half, while Ilya walks half of the time and runs the other half.
Part A

How long does it take Anya to cover the distance of 5.00 ?

Express your answer numerically, in minutes.
Part B

Find Anya's average speed.

Express Anya's average speed numerically, in miles per hour.
Part C

How long does it take Ilya to cover the distance?
