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

#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.

#11/1, 16/2, 21/3, 26/4, 31/6, 36/7, 41/8, 46/9, 51/10#
