The equation is;

p + 90 = 120 minutes

Danielle’s drive from work to the park took 30 minutes ( p = 30 minutes)

Step-by-step explanation:

Here, we want to write and solve an equation

Here, we want to get the time taken by Daniele from the park to work

From the question, the total commute is two hours

since 1 hour is 60 minutes, it follows that 2 hours is 120 minutes

Now, if we added the time taken to commute both journeys, we have the total as 2 hours

This means;

p + 90 = 120 minutes

p = 120 – 90

p = 30 minutes
