A drivers distance varies directly as the amount of time traveled. After six hours, a driver had traveled 390 miles. How far had the driver traveled after 4 hours?
4 is 2/3 of 6, so he traveled
2/3 of 390 = 260 miles
you can use a simple proportion
6/390 = 4/x
6x = 1560
x = 260
it looks like he is traveling at 65 mph
so in 4 hours he would go 260 miles
Thank you guys!
the table below displays the distance driven during each 1hour interval of a 4 hour trip. 1hour 55.25 miles. 2hour 64 3/4. 3hour 52 3/10. 4hour 67.89 Which is closest to the total distance driven?
B 240 miles
C 245 miles
