Question

Coach Scalf runs 6 miles. That is one mile more than two times the distance her husband (h) runs. Write
an equation to find how far Coach Scalf’s husband (h) ran.
You do not need to solve, just write the equation in terms of h.

1. 2h + 1 = 6 is the equation in terms of h given that Coach Scalf runs 6 miles which is one mile more than two times the distance her husband (h) runs. This can be obtained by converting the statements to algebraic equation.

### Write an equation to find how far Coach Scalf’s husband (h) ran:

Here in this question it is given that,
• Coach Scalf runs 6 miles.
• Coach Scalf runs one mile more than two times the distance her husband (h) runs.
We have to find the equation of the distance ran by Coach Scalf in terms of the distance her husband (h) runs.
⇒ Distance ran by Coach Scalf = 6
Also, Distance ran by Coach Scalf  = one mile more than two times the distance her husband (h) runs
Distance ran by Coach Scalf = one mile more than 2h
Distance ran by Coach Scalf = 2h + 1
Equating both values we can write that,
6 = 2h + 1 ⇒ 2h + 1 = 6
Hence 2h + 1 = 6 is the equation in terms of h given that Coach Scalf runs 6 miles which is one mile more than two times the distance her husband (h) runs.
