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.**
