7 MPH because 2 1/3
in 20 minutes. So you multiply 20 by 3 you get 60. Then you multiply 2 by 3 you get 6. Then you multiply 1/3 x 3 and you get 1. 6=1=7 Hope This Helps

Answer:
The average speed of the runner is 7 miles per hour.
Stepbystep explanation:
Given:
Distance ran by [tex]2\frac{ 1}{3} miles[/tex]
Time taken by the runner = 20 minutes.
To find:
The average speed of a runner=?
Solution:
Now, we know that ,
distance = speed x time
Then, [tex]2\frac{ 1}{3} miles[/tex] = average speed x 20 minutes
=> average speed = [tex]\frac{(2 \frac{1}{3} miles)}{(20 minutes)}[/tex]
=> average speed = [tex](\frac{(2 x 3 + 1)}{3} miles)}{(20\times\frac{1}{60} hours)[/tex]
=> average speed=[tex]\frac{(\frac{(6+1)}{3})}{(\frac{20}{60})}[/tex]
=> average speed = [tex]\frac{ (\frac{7}{3})}{(\frac{1}{3})}[/tex]
=>average speed = [tex]\frac{7}{3}\times\frac{3}{1}[/tex]
=>average speed = 7
