First, Jesse covers 6 miles in 1 hour at 6 miles per hour (60 minutes).

If his new speed is 7 miles per hour:

Velocity= Distance/Time

Solve for Time(T):

TIME(T) =DISTANCE/VELOCITY...becomes:

T(hr)=(6 miles X 1HR)/7 miles

Miles cancel, leaves hour(T),therefore 6/7=.857hours

(.857 hours X 60 min)/hr=

51 MINUTES IS THE ANSWER
