1. For the first one, all you have to do is subtract Lily's time from Jake's time.

Yes, it is about 9 blocks. (Convert 30 years to hours. Then, divide the number of blocks by the number of hours.)

Yes, it is about 7.6. (Convert the given time to minutes. Then, divide the number of minutes by the number of miles.)
