    Answer:

    The speed of tortoise is 2 miles per hour and

    The speed of hare is 11 miles per hour

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given as :

    The distance cover by tortoise = \frac{1}{2} miles

    The Time taken by tortoise to cover distance =  \frac{1}{4}  hour

    So, The speed of the tortoise is = \dfrac{\textrm Disatnce cover by tortoise}{\textrm time taken}

    I.e  The speed of the tortoise  = \frac{\frac{1}{2}}{\frac{1}{4}}

    ∴  The speed of the tortoise  = 2 miles per hour

    Again ,

    The distance cover by hare = \frac{11}{2} miles

    The Time taken by hare to cover distance =  \frac{1}{2}  hour

    So, The speed of the hare  = \dfrac{\textrm Disatnce cover by hare}{\textrm time taken}

    I.e  The speed of the hare  = \frac{\frac{11}{2}}{\frac{1}{2}}

    ∴  The speed of the hare  = 11 miles per hour

    Hence The speed of tortoise is 2 miles per hour and

    The speed of hare is 11 miles per hour .  Answer
