  • Answer:

    Average time for West Middle was maximum.

    Step-by-step 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.
