what is the distance traveled by a vehicle in 12 minutes, if it's speed is 35km/h?

And the answer I got was 7km but I got it wrong. Please help!

12 min is 12/60 or 1/5 hr

distance=35km/hr * 1/5 hr= 7 km

It is right.

Did you change 12 minutes to hours? probably not.

distance = rate x time

rate = 35 km/hr

time = 12 minutes = 12 x (1 hr/60 minutes) = 0.2 hr.

distance = 35 x 0.2 = ?? km
