Solve for Time
by: Staff


Answer


distance = speed * time

solve for time

divide each side of the equation by "speed"

distance / speed = speed * time / speed

distance / speed = (speed / speed) * time

distance / speed = (1) * time


distance / speed = time


Beginning with the time-speed-distance formula, solve for time





time = distance / speed

distance = 60 miles

speed = 40 miles per hour

time = 60 / 40

time = 3/2

time = 1.5 hours


Compute the time to travel 60 miles if your speed is 40 miles per hour





The final answer is:

time = 1.5 hours
