Jan,Mya, and sara ran a total of 64 miles last week. Jan and Mya ran the same number of miles. Sarah ran 8 less miles than Maya. How many miles did Sarah run?

How many miles did Sarah run if she ran less than 8 miles compare to Maya and Jan

Jan and Maya = x

Sarah = x

Total miles = 64

=> 64 = x + x + x-8

=> 64 = 3x – 8

=> 72 = 3x

=> x = 24

Since Jan and Maya ran the same miles, they ran 24 miles each

Since Sarah is 8 less than Maya’s and Jan’s ran each

=> x – 8

=> 24 -8

=> 16

Sarah ran 16 miles in a week.
