Geri ran in a marathon race. It took her 3 hours and 28 minute to run 26 miles. How many minutes did it take her to run 1 mile if she ran at the same rate for the whole race? 3 hours and 28 minutes = 208 minutes {changed time to all minutes} Set up a proportion: 26 miles 1 mile  =  {set up a proportion} 208 minutes x minutes 26x = 208 {crossmultiplied} x = 8 minutes {divided each side by 26} 1 mile would take her 8 minutes if the rate was the same.
