Really, you should learn to do your own homework.

Since someone has already told you the answer, here is how you can get it.

1 mile in 8 minutes.

120 minutes in 2 hours.

120 divided by 8 = 15 miles

• If the average person can run 1 mile in 8 minutes, in a hour they can run 7 1/2 miles. So, if they run 2 hours that means 15 miles. The answer is 15 miles.

• this is a very stupid question, most people that ran a mile in 8 minutes would not be able to run any more until they rested an hour or two, but lets play math, not the real world (the problem said "at this rate, how many"

1 mile in 8 minutes

how far in 2 hours (thats 120 minutes right)

so, how many miles in one minute?

easy, 1/8 of a mile, right?

1/8 of a mile every minute, so obviously in 120 minutes

120*1/8=15

15 miles

easy right?

go do the rest of them

math is power

• 16 miles

2 hours = 120 minutes

1mile in 8 minutes : x miles in 120 minutes

1) multiply 8 by x

2) multiply 1 by 120

8(X) = 120

solve for x

120 divided by 8 =16

It should be 15 miles.

Basically, 2 hours is 120 minutes. So divide 120 by 8 to find how many miles are possible.

Hope it helps.

(1 mile/8 minutes) x (60 minutes/hour) x 2 hours =

(1 x 60 x 2) / 8 miles (after cancelling out minutes and hours just like you cancel out numbers) =

120/8 miles =

15 miles
