Answer:number of miles = 9.25 miles = 9 and 1/4 miles

Explanation:For simplicity, I will convert the mixed numbers into decimals to ease the calculations. Then I will convert the final answer back into a mixed number.

So,

3 and 7/10 miles = 3.7 miles

2 and 1/2 hours = 2.5 hours

Now, we are given that the rate of the car is 3.7 miles per hour. To know the time taken by the car to travel 2.5 miles, we will simply do cross multiplication as follows:

3.7 miles …………….> 1 hour

?? miles …………….> 2.5 hous

number of miles = (2.5*3.7) / 1 = 9.25 miles

Now, converting this back into mixed number, we will find that:

number of miles = 9.25 miles = 9 and 1/4 miles

Hope this helps 🙂

i believe the answer is the carp travels 9 1/4 miles in 2 1/2 hours
