One Algebra Question~!
posted by Gabby .
The time, t, required to drive a certain distance varies inversely with the speed, r. If it takes 7 hours to drive the distance at 55 miles per hour, how long will it take to drive the same distance at 65 miles per hour? (1 point)

time/7=55/65
solve for time 
385.00 hours?

you are joking, right? Driving faster, it takes a much longer time?
Maybe if you look at it like this: since distance = speed * time, and both distances are the same,
65*t = 55*7
