Lynn can walk two miles in 24 minutes. At this rate, how long will it take her to walk 6 miles?

Lynn will take ##1## hour and ##12## minutes to walk ##6## miles.

As Lynn walks ##2## miles in ##24## minutes

For one mile, she will take ##24/2=(2xx12)/(2xx1)##

= ##(cancel2xx12)/(cancel2xx1)=12/1=12## minutes.

Hence, to walk ##6## miles,

she will take ##12xx6=72## minutes

or ##60+12## minutes i.e. ##1## hour and ##12## minutes.
