# of boys x distance run by each = total distance OR distance run by boy + distance run by boy + distance run by boy + (add distance for each boy who ran) = total distance run (very basic math problem).

Take 3/4 mi and add it six times, one time per boy. So you have 3/4 + 3/4 + 3/4 + 3/4 + 3/4 + 3/4 = 18/4 miles.

You don’t know how to multiply 6 * 3/4 or 6 times .75.
