A car travels 120 miles for 134 minutes. What is the speed of the car in mph?
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.
