Answer:
Average time for West Middle was maximum.
Stepbystep explanation:
Average time for a track meet for schools = [tex]\frac{\text{Time}}{\text{Distance}}[/tex]
For Eastbay Middle,
Average time per mile = [tex]\frac{42}{7}[/tex]
= 6 minutes per mile
For Northwest Middle,
Average time = [tex]\frac{25}{5}[/tex]
= 5 minutes per mile
For South Central Middle,
Average time = [tex]\frac{28}{4}[/tex]
= 7 minutes per mile
For West Middle,
Average time = [tex]\frac{48}{6}[/tex]
= 8 minutes per mile
Therefore, average time for West Middle (8 minutes per minute) was maximum.
