For the rest of the trip,they hiked on a scenic trail. If their average walking speed was 5km/h how far did they walk?Answer by jojo14344(1512)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! Remember: ---> , BASIC EQN , canoe paddling , hike in scenic trail (walking) Other points to remember: , In BASIC EQN we get, , working eqn Also, . Make sense, time in canoe paddling + time hiking = total time in the trip. Then as per working eqn, ----------------> eqn 1 But remember too, distance in canoe paddling + distance in hiking = total distance in trip ---> ,subst, in eqn 1 , cross multiply --------------------> distance travelled in walking -----------> distance travelled in canoe paddling In doubt? Go back eqn 1, Thank you, Jojo
