Adam needs to drive a distance of 372 miles to New York to attend a seminar. He stops to grab a quick bite after he covers one third the total distance. How many more miles does Adam need to ride to reach his destination?**Solution **

One-third of 372 is 1/3 × 372.

1/3 × 372 = 1/3 × 372/1 = (1 × 372)/ (3 × 1) = 372/3 = 124

When Adam stopped to get a quick bite, he had already covered 124 miles.

Therefore, the number of miles Adam needs to ride to reach his destination is 372 - 124 or 248 miles.
