To find the distance Bert lives from his office, we can use the formula:
Distance = Speed × Time
Given that Bert spends a total of 1 hour commuting, with an average speed of 50 mph, we can divide the total time by 2 (since it includes both the commute to the office and the commute back home):
Total time = 1 hour
Time for one-way commute = Total time / 2 = 1 hour / 2 = 0.5 hour
Using the formula, we can calculate the distance:
Distance = Speed × Time = 50 mph × 0.5 hour = 25 miles
Therefore, Bert lives approximately 25 miles away from his office.
