How fast will she have to run the rest of the race in order to finish in 5 hours total? Ok this is what I have done so far: I took the 26 miles divided it in half to find that she traveled 13 miles in 2 hours. I then used the formula speed = distance over time. She has to run 13 miles left to run divided by the 3 hours she has left. I came up with 4.3 mi/h.Answer by arallie(162)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Perfect
