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?
• about 6.25 hours
• about 385.00 hours
• about 5.92 hours
• about 3.21 hours

1. since ts = k is constant,
and 65 = 13/11 * 55,

(7)(55) = (11/13 * 7)(13/11 * 55)
11/13 * 7 = 5.92
