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?

  • math -

    4 is 2/3 of 6, so he traveled

    2/3 of 390 = 260 miles

  • math -

    you can use a simple proportion

    6/390 = 4/x
    6x = 1560
    x = 260

    or

    it looks like he is traveling at 65 mph
    so in 4 hours he would go 260 miles
