Answer:

If she walks a total of #1# #km# each day it will be #8+3(1)=11# #km#.

If she walks a total of #2# #km# each day (to school and home again) it will be #8+3(2)=14# #km#.

Explanation:

It's not clear whether she is just walking to school each day (#1# #km#), or whether she is walking to and from school each day (#2# #km#).

The total distance walked will be #8+3n# where #n# is the number of km per day.
