The distance that the car travels is 120 miles.
The time given is 134 minutes.
We know that the speed = distance/ time
Since we need to find the speed in terms of mph ( mile per hour), we will need to convert minutes into hours.
==> 60 minutes = 1 hour
==> 134 mint = x hour
==> x = 134/60 = 2.23 hours
Now we will calculate the speed .
==> S = D/T = 120 / 2.23 = 53.73 mph
Then the speed of the car is 53.73 mph.
