Answer:3.5 miles

Step-by-step explanation:Step one:

given data

Samuel runs around a 1-mile track in 10 minutes

Samuel’s speed is

speed= distance/time

speed= 1/10= 0.1 miles per minute

Sophia runs around the same track in 10 minutes

Hence Sophia’s speed is also = 0.1 miles per minute

Step two:

Given that the time is 35 minutes, and their speeds are 0.1 miles per minute, we can find the distance from

speed= distance/time

distance= speed*time

distance= 0.1*35

distance= 3.5 miles
