it takes 35 minutes for mr morrison to drive 25 miles to work. rounded to the nearest mile per hour, what is the speed in miles per hour?

• math -

D = RT (Distance = Rate x Time)
R = D/T

35 min = .58 hour (35/60)
D = 25 mi, T = .58 h
R = 25/.58 = 43.10 mph

to nearest mph = 43 mph

• math -

25/35 = x/60

35x = 1500
x = 42.85 = 43
