Given that a cars travels at 64 mph speed.

Let the speed be S = 64 mph.

We need to determine the distance that the car will travel after 15o minutes assuming that the average speed is 64 mph.

Let the time be t = 150 minutes.

Since we are given the speed by hours, then we will convert the time from minutes to hours.

We know that :

1 hour = 60 min

x hours = 150 min.

==> x = 150 / 60 = 15/ 6 = 2.5

Then the time given = 150 minutes = 2.5 hours.

Now we know that the formula for the distance is :

Distance = Speed * Time.

==> D = S * T

==> D = 64 * 2.5 = 160 miles.

Then the cars will travel 160 miles after 150 minutes at a speed of 64 mph.

 

The speed = 64 mph

Given the time = 150 minutes.
