jason leaves detroit @ 2pm & drives at constant speed west. he passes ann arbor, 40 mi. from detroit at 2:50 pm.

i understand that d=rt. but i'm stuck.

is this the answer-- d(t)=t/rt ??

You could make a table like this

2pm 0m Detroit

2:50 40m Ann Arbor

or you could determine an average rate as

40mi/50min = 4/5 mi/min * 60min/hr = 48mi/hr

I'm not entirely sure what the question is asking for either, so re-read to see if there's any clue somewhere.
