Rate  *  Time = Distance

w = walking rate

b = biking rate = w +8

(w+8) * 25/60   = distance    (25/60 is the amount of hours    25 min = 25/60 hours)

w   *  1.25        = distance

(w+8) * 25/60 =  w * 1.25

25/60 w   +  8 * 25/60   = 1.25 w

3 1/3   = 1.25 w - 25/60 w

= .8333w

w = 3 1/3  / .8333 = 4  km /hr         = walking speed

rate x time = distance

4 km/hr * 1.25  hr =   5 km   = distance between house and repair shop
