Jim rode for what hours?

Jim began a 205​-mile bicycle trip to build up stamina for a triathlete competition.​ Unfortunately, his bicycle chain​ broke, so he finished the trip walking. The whole trip took 9 hours. If Jim walks at a rate of 4 miles per hour and rides at 30 miles per​ hour, find the amount of time he spent on the bicycle.
