We know that the time traveled is 5 hours, since a car going 10 mph faster travels an extra 50 miles over the same amount of time.Dividing 300 miles by 5 hours, we get 60 mph. Since the car is traveling 10 mph, the car is traveling 70 mph.

90 mph = 220 yards in 5 seconds.

45 mph = 45 miles in an hour = 0.75 miles in a minute = 0.0625 miles in 5 seconds = 0.1 km = 100m.

87.5mi/hr2

60 mph = 88 feet per secondThe car's average speed during that 5 seconds is 1/2 of (0 + 88) = 44 feet per second.The distance covered is (average speed) x (time) = 44 x 5 = 220 feet
