A car travels at a speed of 64 mph. What is the distance travelled after 150 minutes?
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.
