F) jog 6 times around in Lane 1

Work Step by Step

Let t be the distance around the track. Let h be the distance from home. Create and solve an expression that represents the distance in each choice. f) $6t=6(0.25)=1.5$ g) $h+5t=0.5+ 5(0.25)=0.5+1.25=1.75$ h) $h+3t+h=0.5+3(0.25)+0.5=0.5+0.75+0.5=1.75$ i) $8t=8(0.25)=2$ Inspect the results to find the smallest value. 1.5 is the smallest result, so f is the correct answer
