    Answer: 2.5 times

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given : The length of Chase’s bike ride= 8\dfrac{3}{4}\ miles

    The length of Maddie’s bike ride=3\dfrac{1}{2}\ miles

    In improper fraction : Length of Chase’s bike ride=\dfrac{4(8)+3}{4}\ miles

    =\dfrac{35}{4}\ miles

    Similarly , Length of Maddie’s bike ride= \dfrac{7}{2}\ miles

    The number of times the length of Chase’s bike ride was Maddie’s bike ride= \dfrac{\text{ Length of Chase's bike ride}}{\text{ Length of Maddie's bike ride}}

    =\dfrac{\dfrac{35}{4}}{\dfrac{7}{2}}\\\\=\dfrac{5}{2}=2.5

    Hence, the length of Chase’s bike ride was 2.5 times Maddie’s bike ride.
