Speed 1 = 168 miles / 2.25 hours = 48 miles/hour
Speed 2 = 48 + 5 miles/hour = 53 miles/hour
Distance 1 = 168 miles
Distance 2 = 2.25 hours X 53 miles/hour =119.25 miles
Total Distance = Distance 1 + Distance 2 = 168 + 119.25 miles = 287.25 miles
Or 287 and 1/4 miles

The distance traveled in the period of 5 and 3\4 hours will be 287 miles and 1\4 miles.
Calculating the velocity of each moment we have:
 Speed 1 :
[tex]168 miles / 2.25 hours = 48 miles/hour[/tex]
 Speed 2:
[tex]48 + 5 miles/hour = 53 miles/hour[/tex]
calculating the distance of each moment we have:
 Distance 1 = 168 miles
 Distance 2:
[tex]2.25 hours X 53 miles/hour =119.25 miles[/tex]
Calculating the total distance we have:
Total Distance = Distance 1 + Distance 2
= 168 + 119.25 miles = 287.25 miles
