Tag! Tanner is planning a trip to his uncle's house out of town. It usually takes him hours to drive to his uncle's house, but due to road construction, it will take him an additional $h\phantom{\rule{0.12em}{0ex}}$ hours driving to complete the trip in 5 hours. Write the equation and find the value of $h\phantom{\rule{0.12em}{0ex}}$ that will make the equation true the equation I wrote is : $2\frac{1}{2}+h\phantom{\rule{0.12em}{0ex}}=5$ is this correct, thanks Für alle, die mir helfen möchten (automatisch von OnlineMathe generiert): "Ich möchte die Lösung in Zusammenarbeit mit anderen erstellen." 

"It usually takes him hours to drive to his uncle's house," How many hours does it take usually. This necessary information is missing. If 2 and $\frac{1}{2}$ hour is this info, your equation is correct. 

yes, $2\frac{1}{2}$ is what usually takes him to get there. so, it is correct, then. Thank you for your confirmation
