Q:
# You bike 11.2 miles in 1.4 hours at a steady rate. What equation represents the proportional relationship between the x hour you bike and the distance y in miles that you travel?

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:[tex]\frac{x}{y}=8[/tex]Step-by-step explanation:Let the time for which i bike is = x hours Let the distance traveled in x hours = y milesRatio of distance and time will be = x : yI travel 11.2 miles in 1.4 hours then the ratio of time and the distance traveled will be 1.4 : 11.2 Or 14 : 112then the ratio of distance and time will be same in both the cases So equation will be [tex]\frac{x}{y}=\frac{14}{112}[/tex][tex]\frac{x}{y}=8[/tex]Therefore, equation representing the proportional relationship will be [tex]\frac{x}{y}=8[/tex]
