• Jerome went on a hike. he climbed three-fourths of a mile in two-thirds of an hour. what was his hiking speed in miles per hour? HELP?!?  Answer #1 | 23/07 2014 15:24 Speed = distance/time = (3/4)/(2/3) = 3/4 x 3/2 = 9/8 or 1 1/8 miles per hour
Positive: 100 %
Answer #2 | 23/07 2014 15:29 3/4of a miles is 3xmile length(i dont know it im on the metric system)/4 and 2/3of an hour is 2x60/3=40 mins so his speed was the number you found, times feet* / how many feet a mile has, divided by 40*60/3600=0,6666 sorry for bad english respond if you need more help or dont understand
Answer #3 | 23/07 2014 15:28 We don't know. If he climbed at 90 degrees it's 9/8 mph.
Answer #4 | 23/07 2014 16:23 His speed is represented by the fraction (¾ mile)/(⅔ hour). To get his speed in miles per hour, you need to make the denominator into 1 hour. Divide both numerator and denominator by ⅔: (9/8 miles)/(1 hour)
