How long does it take her to get home?Answer by Greenfinch(383)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Time in =distance/15 Time back = distance/35 So total time = 2 = d/15 + d/35 = 7d/105 + 3d/105 = 10d/105 So 210 = 10 d or d = 21 miles Now we know the distance, the times can be worked out Time out = 21/15 = 1.4 hours Time in = 21/35 = 0.6 hours Total 2 hours, time to get back, 0.6 hours
