    This can be solve by establishing equations.

    let x be the miles mrs. storey drove

    y be the miles mr storey drovee

    the first equation is

    y = 3x

    second equation

    x + y = 3200

    then substitute equation 1

    x + 3x = 3200

    4x = 3200

    x = 800 miles mrs storey drove

    y = 3x = 2400 miles mr storey drove
