    First, let's convert the givens to decimals to make calculations easier:

    2 (3/4) = 2.75

    9 (5/8) = 9.625

    We are given that:

    Josie can hike 2.75 miles in one hour.

    To know the time that Josie would take to hike 9.625 miles, we will simply do cross multiplication as follows:

    2.75 miles ... > 1 hour

    9.625 miles ... >? hours

    Time = (9.625*1) / (2.75) = 3.5 hours
