If I traveled 3 miles in a day, how many hours did I travel?
How would I go about solving this problem?

Msp,
Do you mean miles per hour? Is it a 24 hour day? Please recheck your question...it doesn't make sense to me.

Mack,
yes it's miles per hour and no its not a 24 hour day because I'm only traveling at night so that would make it a 12 hour day right?

Math 
Msp,
Okay, thanks for the clarification. You just take your miles and divide by the time(hours) add you will get miles per hour. In this case it will be 3 divided by 12 and you will get .25 miles per hour. Each four hours you will go a total of one mile so in 12 hours you will go the 3 miles. Hope this is helpful. Good Luck!
