Question 196230: The track team ran to the cemetary at 8mph and jogged back home at 6mph. If the total trip took 7 hours, how far was it to the cemetary? Found 2 solutions by josmiceli, Alan3354:Answer by josmiceli(9645) (Show Source):
You can put this solution on YOUR website! t = d/r (time = distance/rate)
The distance to and from the cemetery (no a in cemetery) is obviously the same.
7 = d/8 + d/6
Multiply by 48
336 = 6d + 8d = 14d
d = 24 miles
