Mary walked to the park on Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday she took a different route home that was
1 1/2 miles longer than the route she took on Sunday. If she walked a total of 8 miles, how many miles did she walk on Saturday?

  • Math -

    x + x + 1 1/2 = 8

    2x = 8 - 1 1/2

    2x = 6 1/2

    x = 3 1/4

    8 - 3 1/4 = 4 3/4
