### Explanatory Answer | GMAT Time Speed Distance Practice

#### Find Time Travelled at 60 mph

Let Jane travel 'x' hours at 60 miles per hour.
As the total time taken to cover 340 miles is 5 hours, Jane would have traveled (5 - x) hours at 80 miles per hour.

Distance covered at 60 miles per hour = Speed × time = 60 × x = 60x miles.
Distance covered at 80 miles per hour = Speed × time = 80 (5 - x) = 400 - 80x miles.

Total distance covered = Distance covered at 60 miles per hour + Distance covered at 80 miles per hour.
Therefore, total distance = 60x + 400 - 80x.
Total distance travelled = 340 miles.

Therefore, 340 = 60x + 400 - 80x
20x = 60 or x = 3 hours.
