Solve for X

In celebration of the completion of the first week back in session for our local public schools, let’s solve some math problems.  Although not all of our student athletes are pictured above, Coach Mike took a count at practice last night of riders who will be participating in the “group ride” this Sunday.

Problem 1: If 21 of our 27 student athletes are conflict free and thus plan to attend, what percentage of our team will be riding in Race 1 of the fall NICA series hosted by Miller School of Albemarle? 21/27=78% That is significant.

Problem 2: Solve for X. Sunday group rides are averaging 30 people.  THIS Sunday’s ride will likely number 300 riders.  What is the factor of increase?  30x=300  300/30=10  I guess that means we can look forward to TEN times the fun!

The comment section of this post is open.  Please share your well wishes with the team.

  1. It looks like it will be a beautiful day for a bike ride in the mountains. Enjoy the adventure! Travis and I will be cheering you up the first hill and then across the finish line. So very proud of our team!
