    Answer:

    Distance between Ryan home and mountain will be 252 miles

    Explanation:

    Let the distance from home to mountains is d

    It is given that it took 7 hours to go mountains from home

    Let the speed in going to mountain is v

    Then according to question speed in coming from mountain is v+27

    And time taken in come from mountain to home is hour

    As distance will be same in both case

    Distance will be equal to distance=speed\times time

    So v\times 7=(v+27)\times 4

    3v=108

    v = 36 miles per hour

    So distance will be equal to d=36\times 7=252miles
