You can put this solution on YOUR website! Let the number of calories burn be x the linear equation would look something like :
x = 14 X minutes jogged
In the question the man jogged for 32 minutes, which means :
x = 14 X 32
x = 448
But, this is only true if the jogging is done at a speed of 9mph!
Ans : 448 calories are burnt while jogging for 32 minutes.
