comingsoon,

distance to minnies house = 5 miles they walked "the remaining mile"
Look close, it doesn't say "the remaining distance" or "the remaining miles" it says "the remaining MILE" which means there is only one mile left to walk.

so total distance = 5 miles + 1 mile(the remaining mile) = 6 miles

If you are wondering how the total time is 3/4 hours, 3/4 hours = 45 mins

If you are wondering how the speed of the bike is 12, its because it takes him half an hour to travel 6 miles, 6/(1/2) is 12

If you are wondering how time taken to go to minnies house is 5/12, its because 
                                time = distance to minnies house/speed  of bike= 5/12

I hope you are not wondering anything else.

Cheers

Can you show how you got the walking distance = 1 mile?

I was wondering if i can form an equation and solve it.

the remaining mile = the remaining one mile

I am tired of explaining this now! If anyone else gets it, please pitch in to explain.

The remaining mile = 1 mile . I don't know much English but what i believe is ,
ram ate 3 cookies and you ate  the remaining cookie.
so there was 4 cookies .. I believe like this as dynamite has described

dynamite
That's why I am confused like many others. I first wrote you off, but then saw 'MILE' also hence I was asking if I was wrong.
But nyshangal has a point, MILE doesn't always mean 1 mile, it could be mean 1/2 mile too, but the word remaining certainly points it toward being 1 mile.

Anways, I am not sure if the distance from Minney's house to home is not given then we might have too many variables to solve the problem so I will go with 1 mile.

I think there is different between the remaining and remaining,
if there is the that's refers last one.

Stiffler, if it was less than a mile, then it would say, the remaining distance.
You cannot say "the mile" if it is not a complete mile.
you cannot say "the 2 miles" if it is not exactly 2 miles, its simple.
Hope it helps.

Comingsoon makes sense (the placement of "the"). Very badly worded problem, sounds more like grammer problem than maths.

बुझ्नेलाई श्रिखन्ड नबुझ्नेलाई खुर्पाको बिँड् भनेको एही हो।

you don't understand the English language and blame the grammar on that.

Dynamite is right. When it says the remaining mile, it means the remaining one mile. because mile is singular there is no need to say one mile after saying the remaining.
If it had said the remaining miles, then you don't know how many miles......
For those who are concerned about the remaining half mile, it would have been written the remaining half mile if the question was meant to refer the half mile.

Jhyamma guru

You sound like a grammar and english language virtuoso. First of all, I didn't blame grammar itself; read my posting. I said the problem sounds like "Grammar problem" meaning a Grammar question, not a math question. Comprende?

Second, the sentence that you used to claim your superiority over english grammar is wrong itself (use of idiom "on that" was wrong/vague). Analyze it and write a report.

Lastly your argument that "Mile" has to be 1 mile because it is singular has already been countered by nyshangal's point that Mile can be 1/2 mile also. While you acknowledged this fact, you still forwarded the lame reasoning. The best justification was presented by the poster himself with "the" and its placement right before Mile which signifies one mile.

By the way what was the gist of your posting specially when most of us, including me, already agreed on the solution?

So "the remaining mile" is the key huh? Dyna, if you hadn't answered, either it would have been a new formula or lost the sanity! ; )

Good one;  had me in thinking for a while until I finally decided to read the question one more time!
