Here's how I did mines : A= number of hours , B= Number of miles , C= distance travel . so ;A =12 , B = 36 , 36 divided by 12 = 3 mph. then, remember the question states his son goes at twice as fast as his dad rate of speed so I multiply 3 times 2 = 6 . then I multiply 6 times 9 = 54 miles   John Smith 54    Search for Google images Select a recommended image
