There are eight furlongs in a mile and two weeks in a fortnight. If I travel 2800 furlongs in a fortnight, how many miles per day, rounded to the nearest whole number, did I travel?

Accepted Solution

Hello there! So, a fortnight is two weeks and two weeks is 14 days. You traveled 2,800 furlongs in two weeks. First off, let's divide the number of furlongs by the amount per mile. 2,800/8 is 350. That's 350 miles in two weeks. Now, we can divide 350 by 14 to find the amount traveled in 14 days. 350/14 is 25. There. You traveled 25 miles per day.
