how do you calculate the time when average speed is given

  • Mathematics -

    time = distance divided by speed

  • Mathematics -

    the distance is 50 and the speed is 60 which equals 0.8333.... not sure is that answer makes sense

  • Mathematics -

    Yes, it makes sense. The time is 0.83 hour.

    60 * 0.83 = 50 minutes
