Jill is 11 kilometers away from Joe.  Both begin to walk toward each other at the same time.  Jill walks at 2.5 kilometers per hour.  They meet in 2 hours.  How fast is Joe walking?

Jill's speed = 2.5kph
Distance = 11km
time = 2 h
Joe's speed = x

You have the speed of Jill. You have the total speed. You want the speed of Joe. Get it as follows:

2.5 kph +x = 11km/2h
              = 5.5 kph
x= 5.5kph - 2.5kph
x= 3kph 

Please let me know if you have any other questions and best me if you are satisfactory.
