If you are traveling  50 miles at 60mph how long would it take you to get there????

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

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.
