### Subject: Algebra

Tommy walked for 2 hours then ran for 1 hour. If she runs three times as fast as she walks and the total trip was 20 kilometers, then how fast does she run?

Let x be the walking speed. 3x will be the running speed. 2*(x) will be the distance walked and 1*(3x) will be the distance run. Total distance is 20 km. So, 2x + 3x = 20 x = 4 km/hr , 3x = 12 km/hr and it is the speed of Tommy when running.
