    Answer: He rode 4.8 miles each day.

    Variable: x = Constant distance distance traveledd each day.

    Equation : 10+5x=34

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Total distance needs to travel = 34 miles

    Distance already traveled = 10 miles

    He will ride bicycle for 5  more days.

    Let x = Constant distance distance traveledd each day.

    Total distance = 10+5x

    i.e.

    10+5x=34\\\\\Rightarrow\ 5x=24\\\\\Rightarrow\ x=4.8

    Hence, he rode 4.8 miles each day.
