Hey dcmath.

If she runs four days a week at x miles a day then the number of miles in that week is 4*x miles. x increases 0.5km per week. The second week will give x = 1.5 + 0.5 = 2.0km. Try using that pattern to get the other weeks.

Results 1 to 4 of 4

## Re: Help please

Maray runs four days a week and 1.5 km each day. So distance covered each week is 1.5 * 4 = 6 km

Increases 0.5 km per day so in a week she increases 2 km

Thus second week she would cover 6 + 2 = 8 km and third week 8 + 2 = 10 km and so on.
