please show me how to solve these:
1. Simpson drives his car with an average velocity of 48.0 km/h to the east. How long will it take him to drive 144 km on a straight highway?
answer=3.00 h
2. How much time would Simpson save by increasing his average velocity to 56.0 km/h to the east?
answer=0.43 h
