Han and Tyler both started walking toward each other from opposite ends of a 18-mile path. Han walks at a pace of 4 miles per hour and Tyler walks at a pace of 2 miles per hour.
How long does it take for Han and Tyler to meet?
Explain or show your reasoning.


  1. First, you can add up 4+2 to get 6 because they’re both rates.

    Next, divide 18 by 6 and you get 3.

    So, it will take three hours for the boys to meet up.

    One way to check your answer is to multiply 4×3=12 and 2×3=6 and 12+6 is 18.
