**Bob**, Tuesday, September 13, 2011 at 12:18amDistance = rate * time

39 miles is the "Distance" from Franklin to his home, and 43 m/hr is his "rate" of travel. You are trying to figure out the "time" it takes for him to get home traveling at this "Distance" and "rate".

Switch the Distance formula around for "time" and plug the numbers in:

time = Distance/rate

time = 39 miles/43 mph

time = .09 hours

**Bob**, Tuesday, September 13, 2011 at 12:23amWoops. I accidentally wrote .09 instead of .907

However, the actual answer is just the result of the distance divided by the rate (aka whatever 39/43 is).
