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
