$0.43 \text{ hours}$

#### Explanation:

(15 cancel"miles")/(35 cancel"miles"/"hour") = (cancel5*3)/(cancel5*7) " hours" = 3/7 " hours"= 0.43 " hours"

$0.43$ hours or approximately $26$ minutes.

#### Explanation:

We use the distance-time equation, which states that,

$t = \frac{d}{s}$

• $d$ is the total distance travelled

• $s$ is the speed

And so, we got:

$t = \left(15 \textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{\text{miles")/(35color(red)cancelcolor(black)"miles""/h}}}}\right)$

$\approx 0.43 \setminus \text{h}$
