You are given   1 mile = (1/3)*(distance to school) Multiply this equation by 3 and you have   3 mile = (distance to school) You also know that   (distance ridden so far) +(remaining distance) = (distance to school) Subsituting given information, this is   1 mile + (remaining distance) = 3 mile Subtracting 1 mile from this equation gives   (remaining distance) = 2 miles Alexander has 2 miles more to ride.
