  1. If the plane is travelling at 15 miles per minute, it'll take 500/15 = 100/3 minutes = 100/(60x3) hours = 5/9 hours to cover 500 miles. In that 5/9 hours, the car will travel (5/9) x 55 = 30.556 miles. (I've checked it three times because the numbers look a bit messy for an exercise like this, but I think I've got it right.)
