In the morning, they travelled $105$ miles.

#### Explanation:

If we represent the distance travelled in the morning as $x$, the distance travelled in the afternoon will be $3 x$, and we can write an equation:

$x + 3 x = 420$

$4 x = 420$

Divide both sides by $4$.

$x = \frac{420}{4}$

$x = 105$
