In a lightning storm, the number of seconds between the flash and the bang varies directly with the number of miles you are from the lightning. It takes 15 seconds for the thunder sound to reach you from lightning that is 3 miles away. If the thunder sound reaches you in 1 second, how far away is the lightning?
