A family vacation trip took 12 hours.Of the total distance,was in a car and was in a boat.... more below?
....and the car traveled 5 times as fast as the boat. How much more time, in hours, was spent in the
boat than in the car?

The ratio of time in car and boat is 5:1 (boat being the longest)
5 + 1 = 6 parts
1 part = 12/6 = 2 hours = time in car
5 parts = 2 x 5 = 10 hours = time on boat
There was 10 - 2 = 8 hours more spent on the boat.

Let the time spent in the boat by "t".
Then, t+t/5 = 12,
t = 10 hours.

Let v be speed
t(car) = d/v = d/5v
t(boat) = d/v = d/v
Well, you can just look at the question and conclude the answer is 5x (ans = 60 hours)
