Joe traveled from Austin to Leander last week. Joe completed 4/5 of the distance in the morning and 1/5 of the remaining distance in the afternoon. I still had 12 miles to travel. What is the distance from Austin to Leander?
What does this mean? " I still had 12 miles to travel" ??!!
x = total distance
x - 4/5x - 1/5 (1/5x) = 12
x = 75 miles
