3 Miles r t = d, t = d/r Let L, a and b be the length of level ground, uphill length and downhill length to jon's house respectively. The following expression represents the total time for a round trip to jon's house:$\frac{L}{6}+\frac{a}{4}+\frac{b}{12}+\frac{L}{6}+\frac{a}{12}+\frac{b}{4}=1$Combine the factions in the above expression and simplify .$a+b+L= 3$
