Monday Math – Lesson #25

Maths instruction in class

Welcome back to #MondayMath once again.

We have been posing Math questions every Monday on our Facebook page. These are questions that our students also encounter in Mathematics classes at B.D. Somani.

Last week, we were counting squares. This week, we have a bog to cross.

This one is for all you pet lovers out there!

A hog, a dog, and a frog all want to cross a bog.
The hog slogs across at a speed of five feet per second.
The dog logs a time of 20 minutes for its crossing.
The frog jogs across twice as fast as the hog but half as fast as the dog.
What is the distance in feet across the bog?
