The Problem

In a given training week, a swimmer completes 3/7 mile on day one, 2/3 mile on day two, and 1/2 mile on day three

Answer provided by our tutors

Since, no question was asked, we will assume that it is desired to know the total number of miles that the swimmer swims during the specified week. We can write:

(3/7)+(2/3)+(1/2)=67/42=1.59miles

Therefore, the swimmer swims 1.59 miles
