a driver who drives at a speed of r mph for t hr will travel a distance d mi given by d = rt miles. How far will a driver travel at a speed of 58 mph for 5 hr?

Is it possible to multipy the speed x time?

distance = rate times time
You're looking for the distance (d).
The rate is 58 mph. The time is 5 hours.
d = r * t
d = 58 * 5
d = ? hours
We'll be glad to check your answer.
