Sample Problem

Read the route map carefully and answer the following questions.

Lily biked from home to a fruit shop and then met John at the coffee house. Lucy walked from home to a video shop and then met Lily and John at the coffee house.

1) How far did Lily bike? m

2) How far did Lucy walk? m

3) Whose distance is longer?

4) How much longer? m

Solution

1) Distance Lily biked: 500 m + 400 m = 900 m

2) Distance Lucy walked: 600 m + 700 m = 1,300 m

3) Lucy’s distance is longer.

4) Distance: 1,300 m – 900 m = 400 m.
