We are traveling at a speed S = 60 m/h
The distance we are traveling is D = 50 m
We know that:
Speed (S) = distance (D)/ Time (T)
60 = 50 / T
==> T = 50/60 = 5/6 hour
==> T = 5/6 * 60 minutes = 50 minutes.
Then, the time needed to travel 50 miles at a 60m/h speed is 50 minutes.

The distance to be travelled = 50 miles.
The speed = 60mph.
Therefore the time required = distance / speed
= 50miles/(60mles/hour) = (5/6) hour = 5*60/6 minutes = 50 min
You can use the formula of distance, that is:
D = speed*time
So the distance is given D = 50 miles and the time is speed is = 60mph
We'll substitute the values into the formula:
50 miles = 60 mph * t
We'll divide 60 mph, in order to isolate t:
t = 50/60
We'll divide by 10:
t = 5/6 hour
But 1 hour is of 60 minutes
t = 5*60/6 minutes
We'll divide by 6:
t = 5*10
t = 50 minutes
So, in order to get there, you have to travel 50 minutes.
