Jennifer

4/15 mph

Step-by-step explanation:

First, we find the two speeds in miles per hour.

Victoria:

1 1/5 mile per 1/2 hour = (1 1/5 mile)/(1/2 hour) = 2 2/5 mph = 2.4 mph

Jennifer:

2/3 mile per 1/4 hour = (2/3 mile)/(1/4 hour) = 8/3 mph = 2 2/3 mph

2 2/3 mph > 2 2/5 mph, so Jennifer's speed is greater.

The difference in speeds in mph is:

2 2/3 - 2 2/5 = 2 10/15 - 2 6/15 = 4/15
