A boy walked over hills at 3 kilometers per hour and on flat roads at 4 kilometers perhour.he walked 18 kilome

Question:ters in 5 hours.How much of his trip was over hills?

Answers:
let's say the time he walks 3 km/h is called t1
and the time he walks 4 km/h is called t2

so
t1 + t2 = 5
and
3×t1 + 4×t2 = 18

if t1 + t2 = 5 then t2 = 5 - t1
and so:
3×t1 + 4× (5-t1) = 18

3×t1 + 20 - 4×t1 =18

20 - t1 = 18

t1 = 2 hours
which is the time he walks 3 km/h

and t2 = 3 hours

now lets test

(3 × 2) + (4 × 3) = 6 + 12 = 18
so there you have it.
2 hours
2 hours
