Take note that in the formula


D represents the distance traveled, R is the rate, and T is the time.

Below is an example of a word problem that applies the said formula.


Jack travels for 5 hours at an average speed of 62 miles per hour. How far did Jack travel?

To determine the distance traveled, plug-in the values of rate (62) and time (5) to the formula



`D= 62 * 5`


Hence, Jack has traveled 310 miles.
