    Answer:

    You would have walked a total of 7/10 miles or .7 miles.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    First you have to make the fractions have a common denominator. Let’s do 10.

    1/5 =2/10  you multiply the top and bottom by 2 to get a bottom of 10

    1/2=5/10 you multiply the top and bottom by 5 to get a bottom of 10

    Now we can add these,

    2/10 + 5/10= 7/10  You do not add the denominators, only the numerators when the denominators are equal.

    You would have walked a total of 7/10 miles or .7 miles.
