$41.2$ miles

#### Explanation:

To solve the question, first find the number of miles Rachel power walked.

She walked $2 \frac{3}{5}$ or $2.6$ miles a day for seven days. Multiply seven days by $2.6$ to find the total number of miles Rachel power walked that week.

$2.6 \cdot 7 = 18.2$

Next, find the number of miles Rachel jogged.

She jogged $5.75$ miles a day for four days. Multiply $4$ by $5.75$ to find the number of miles Rachel jogged that week.

$5.75 \cdot 4 = 23$

Rachel power walked 18.2 miles and jogged 23 miles. Add the two values up to find the total number of miles that she power walked and jogged.

$18.2 + 23 = 41.2$
