To get from her home to a friend's house, Georgia must go past a school, then a post office:

Signs tell Georgia that the distance she walks from home to the school is mile, and the distance from the school to the post office is mile.

The whole trip takes Georgia minutes. If Georgia can walk a mile in minutes, then how many miles is the distance from the post office to her friend's house?

Let the distance from Post Office to Friend's house =D

7/8 + 5/6 + D =miles - Total distance from Georgia's house to a Friend's house.

42 minutes / 18 minutes per mile =2 1/3 miles - toal distance from her house to a friend's house. So, we have:

7/8 + 5/6 + D = 2 1/3, solve for D

[21 + 20] / 24 + D = 2 1/3

41/24 + D = 2 1/3 subtract 41/24 from both sides

D =2 1/3 - 41/24

D =7/3 - 41/24

D =[56 -41] / 24

D = 15 / 24

**D = 5/8 of a mile - distance between the Post Office and her Friend's house.**

SO SORRY

To get from her home to a friend's house, Georgia must go past a school, then a post office:
