Sheila can ride her bicycle 6000 meters in 15 minutes. How far can she ride her bicycle in 2 minutes?

800 meters

We know she can ride 6,000 meters in 15 minutes. In order to find how far she can ride in 1 minute, we divide 6000 meters/15 minutes.
6000/15 = 400
So if she can ride 400 meters in one minute, how far can she ride in two minutes? If we multiply by 2, we would get our answer (we multiply by two for the amount of minutes).
400*2 = 800.
Therefore, she can ride 800 meters in 2 minutes.
Hope this helps.
