    Answer:

    The distance cover by him walking back is 11.25 miles

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given as :

    Time for Janelle to spend on training = 5 hours

    The  running speed of Janelle = 9 mph

    The walking back with 3 mph

    Let The distance for running and walking is same i.e  D miles

    SO, Time = \frac{Distance}{Speed}

    ∴  5 =  \frac{D}{9} +  \frac{D}{3}

    Or, 5 × 9 = D + 3 D

    Or, 45 = 4 D

    ∴   D = \frac{45}{4} = 11.25 miles

    Hence The distance cover by him walking back is 11.25 miles   Answer
