a. 20.4km/h (or 20.400000000000000000000000000008)
5km + 12km = 17km
Total time - 50minutes (or 0.83333333333333333 hours)
17 ÷ 0.83333333333333333 = 20.4
c. 0.62hrs / 37.2mins
[a² + b² =c²] c = school ⇔ home
5² + 12² = c²
15 + 144 = c²
159 = c²
12.6km = c
Time = Distance ÷ Speed
12.6 ÷ 20.4 ≈ 0.62hrs / 37.2mins
