Jack's thinking: I think the answer is 24. 64/8=8 and 3*8=24.
Bailley's response: You are right Jack! That's how you get the answer too! I hope that you have fun with other problems! Bye!

That was really good Jack. I liked how you did it because I understood it . The answer is 0.5 miles left.

3 divided by 2 equals 1.5+1=2.5

This problem was easy for me because I did 1/2 * 3/1 = 3/2. When I got that, I turned it into a mixed fraction and got 1 1/2 miles to go. I hope that people have a fun time figuring out this problem! Bye!
