Answer:

Answer choice 3 (6 2/3miles) is the best one in this case.

Explanation:

Based on the trend of the graph, it increases at a rate of about 2 miles per 18 minutes.
Proportionally, to find the best result for 60 minutes, an equation could be set up as:
#2/18# = #x/60#

Then using cross multiplication, the result would be:
#120# = #18x#

Next divide both sides by 18 to find the solution for x (the approximate number of miles):
#120/18# = #6.66666666667# or #6 2/3#
x = #6 2/3# miles
