Suppose you are driving to visit a friend who lives far away. You are driving at an average rate of 55 miles per hour. You must drive a total of 295 miles. If you have already driven 20 miles, how long will it take you to reach your destination?

A) 2 hours
B) 5 hours*
C) 3 hours
D) 4 hours

1. Freedom

Current distance = 295 - 20 = 275.
d = r t

d/r = t

275 mi / 55 mi/h = 5 hours.
Correct.
