Jill walks at 1km/hr. they meet in 4hr. How fast is how walking?Answer by chana(69)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Jill is 10 kilometers away from joe. Both begin to walk toward each other at the same time. Jill walks at 1km/hr. they meet in 4hr. How fast is how walking? sol: let the speed of joe is x km/hr. distance moved by jill + distance moved by joe = distance apart distance = speed * time so (1 * 4) + (x * 4) = 10 solving for x gives you speed of joe which is 1.5 km/hr
