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
