75 *5280 feet/3600 seconds * 3 seconds = 330 feet
(about 100 meters)

To solve this problem we shall use the formula that relates distance, speed and time.
speed = distance/time
Or, speed*time = distance
Now, speed = 75miles/hour = 75miles/(60*60)second = 75miles/3600second = 0.020833mile/second
So, the distance travelled is = (.020833mile/second)*3second
= 0.062499mile or 0.0625mile
