Trevor rode his mountain bike 84 km in 3 h. Jillian rode 70 km in 2.5 h. Who is the faster cyclist? How do you know?

Trevor : 84 km ÷ 3h = 28 km Trevor rides at 28 km/hour

Jillian : 70 km ÷ 2.5 h= 28 km Jillian rides at 28 km/hour

Trevor and Jillian ride at the same speed because they traveled the same distance in 1 hour.

Coin Question:
A jar was filled with 1707 coins. You started to put coins in it on January 1,2010 and filled it up on October 7,2014. How many coins do you put into the jar per day?

January 1, 2010 to October 7,2014 = 1707 days
