Over the weekend mario rode 58 miles. On sunday he rode 8 miles more than two thirds of his distance on saturday. How much did he ride each day?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

let the distance mario rode on saturday be X

DISTANCE RODE ON SUNDAY = 8+2/3X

X +8 +2/3X = 58

X+2/3X =58-8

5/3X= 50

X= 50*3/5

X= 30

DISTANCE RODE ON SATURDAY =30 miles

DISTANCE RODE ON SUNDAY = 58-30 =28 

OR =8+2/3*30 

        = 8+20 = 28 miles
