Answer:

#1/5# miles

Explanation:

To find the time for one mile, first you can find the time for #1/4# miles. There you divide the time given by 5, because the distance given is #5/4# miles:
#1/4 -: 5 = 1/20#

Then you can find the time for one mile, by multiplying the time for #1/4# mile by 4:
#1/20 xx 4 = 1/5#
