Indira and Jean begin their hike at 10 a.m. one morning. They plan to hike from the 2 2/5-mile marker to the 8 1/10-mile marker along the trail. They plan to hike at an average speed of 3 miles per hour. Will they reach 8 1/10-mile marker by noon? Explain your reasoning.

I had tried to add 8 1/10 and 2 2/5 then divide the sum by 3. 10 am? How do i do this please help asap. Due tomorrow!

  1. Let's convert these fractions to decimals.

    They start at the 2.4 marker and end at the 8.1 marker

    8.1 - 2.4 = 5.7 miles

    5.7 / 3 = 1.9 hours

    10 + 1.9 = 11.9 which is before noon.
