#### Explanation:

We can know that he needs to increase by 50 minutes to reach 61 minutes per day.

$\frac{50}{5} = 10$

Jake needs to jog 10 more weeks.
Double check the answer by doing it a harder way, using ratios. Let the first number be how many minutes a week and the second being how many weeks.

$\frac{11}{1} , \frac{16}{2} , \frac{21}{3} , \frac{26}{4} , \frac{31}{6} , \frac{36}{7} , \frac{41}{8} , \frac{46}{9} , \frac{51}{10}$
