Question

Haley and tyler are on the cross country team. tyler can run 1 mile (ata constant speed) in 8 minutes and 20 seconds. haley’s distances and times for a training run are given by the equation y=8x where x represent distanse and times in miles and y represents time in minutes. who ran farther in 10 minutes how much farther

1. Haler ran farther than Tyler in 10 minutes. She covered an extra 0.05 miles compared to Tyler.

### What is an equation?

An equation is an expression that shows the relationship between two numbers and variables.
An independent variable is a variable that does not depend on any other variable for its value whereas a dependent variable is a variable that depend on any other variable for its value.
Tyler can run 1 mile in 8 minutes and 20 seconds.
Time taken = 8 mins + 20 sec (0.33 min) = 8.33 minutes
Speed = distance / time = 1 mile / 8.33 = 0.12 mile per min
In 10 minutes, distance = 0.12 mile per min * 10 min = 1.2 mile
Haler is given by:
y = 8x; where y is time and x is distance.
In 10 minutes, distance = y/8 = 10/8 = 1.25 miles
Haler ran farther than Tyler in 10 minutes. She covered an extra 0.05 miles compared to Tyler.
