# Alicia and Felix went on a hiking trip. They hiked 5/8 of a mile up the trail and stopped to rest. Then they hiked 1/4 of a mile more. How far did they hike?

They hiked $\frac{7}{8}$ of a mile
Alicia and Felix on their a hiking trip, hiked $\frac{5}{8}$ of a mile up the trail and stopped to rest.
Then they hiked for $\frac{1}{4}$ of a mile more, which is $\frac{1 \times 2}{4 \times 2} = \frac{2}{8}$ mile
Hence they hiked $\frac{5}{8} + \frac{2}{8} = \frac{5 + 2}{8} = \frac{7}{8}$ of a mile
