Explanation

To calculate Svetlana’s speed during the second half of the race, first calculate how long it took her to run the first half of the race. Svetlana ran the first 5 kilometers at a constant rate of 12 kilometers per hour.

These values can be used in the D = RT formula:

D(km)=R(km per hour) * T (hr)

Svetlana’s time for the first part of the race is \(\frac{5}{12}\)hours, or 25 minutes.

She completed the entire 10-kilometer race in 55 minutes, so she ran the last 5 kilometers in 55 – 25 = 30 minutes, or 0.5 hours. Now create another chart to find the rate at which she ran the last 5 kilometers:

5 = 0.5r
10 = r

Svetlana ran the second half of the race at a speed of 10 kilometers per hour.
