Answer:1.27 hours

Step-by-step explanation:The first step in this process would be adding both rates of Leila and Han together. We know Leila walks at 2.5 miles per hour and Han at 3 miles per hour.

[tex]2.5 + 3 = 5.5[/tex]

We got our sum as 5.5, so now we must complete Step 2, which is the final step. We must divide 7 by 5.5.

[tex]7 / 5.5 = 1.2727…[/tex]

1.2727 ≈ 1.27

the answer to the Question is 1.27 hours.

2.5 + 3 = 5.5 total speed

7miles / 5.5 mph = 1.27 hours
