Answer:

108 miles in 18 hours

Step-by-step explanation:

Remember the formula:

Distance = rate x time

From the first sentence,

“I can ride my bike 72 miles in 12 hours.”

we know that the distance = 72 miles and the time = 12 hours.

By putting the known values in the formula,

72 miles = rate x 12 hours

You can find your rate, which essentially is the speed you are moving at,

Lets say rate = r

72 = 12r

r = 72/12

r = 6

So your rate is 6 miles per hour.

Now we have this part of the question:

If you go 6 miles per hour, then how far will you go in 18 hours?

Remember the formula

d = rt

Plug in the values:

d = 18 x 6

d = 108 miles

Answer: 108 miles

There is 6 miles per hour

Multiply 6×18=108
