2. don't understand? a total is the sum of its parts, so just add the distances for each day.

12 5/8 + 5 2/3 + 6 3/8 = (12+5+6) + (5/8 + 2/3 + 3/8) = ?

to add fractions, you need a common denominator, so take that step first.
Actually, it's even simpler in this case, since 5/8 + 3/8 = 8/8 = 1
so
(12+5+6) + (5/8 + 2/3 + 3/8) = 23 + 1 2/3 = 24 1/3
