Miles per hour is a unit of speed. Minutes are a unit of time. Without a unit of distance to convert, the two units are incompatible.

1 hour and 45 minutes

Here's a much shorter answer, showing the process to get there, with unit conversion in brackets:50 [miles/hour] * 1/60 [hour/minutes] * 105 [minutes] = 50 / 60 * 105 [miles] =87.5 [miles].Read my original response for a more in-depth explanation of unit conversion.-dluberger 09/02/2013***Original Answer***It is important to use proper unit conversion techniques here:Speed is a scalar quantity expressed in distance-per-unit-time; since you want to end up with a distance in the same units as the speed, but your speed involves a different time unit, you must convert the given time to the same units, like so:(50 miles / 1 hour) * (1 hour / 60 minutes) = (50 miles / 60 minutes) ; so divide 50 into 60, and leave the new units: [miles / minute], read "miles per minute". notice in the preceding equation, the first "fraction" has hours on the bottom (50 miles / 1 hour), and the next fraction has hours on the top (1 hour / 60 minutes). The reason we do this is because we want to know "If the resultant units must be in minutes, how do I express my speed in minutes?" To do so, we must somehow replace "hours" with minutes. The trick is to remember that a fraction with some number (or unit in this case) on the bottom, multiplied by a fraction with the samenumber on top causes that number to be cancelled.So we get 50/60 miles-per-minute or 0.833 miles-per-minute. Now we can answer the original question:(0.833 miles / 1 minute) * (105 minutes) : the minutes cancel, leaving only the unit miles: 0.833 miles * 105 = 87.5 milesAs a good excecise, take this technique of unit conversion, and try something like:Given a speed of 50 mph (miles-per-hour), how many feet are travelled in 10 seconds?Hint: you have to convert two units, not just one: miles to feet, and hours to seconds.The answer is 733.33 feet. See if you can come up with the same answer.-dluberger 4/10/2010

1.75 hours, or 1 hour 45 minutes.

105 minutes (1 hour + 45 minutes = 60 minutes + 45 minutes)

There are 60 seconds in one minute. Therefore, 105 minutes is equal to 105 x 60 = 6300 seconds.

60 seconds = 1 minute so 105 sec = 1.75 min

148.75 miles.

Need average speed to calculate.

50 mph = 50 miles per 60 minutes = 50*105/60 miles in 105 minutes = 87.5 miles.

105 minutes is 6,300 seconds.

Answer: 105 mi. = 168.981 km The full algebraic conversion for miles to km is: 105 mi* 63360 in 1 mi * 2.54 cm 1 in * 1 km 100000 cm = 168.98112 km

It will take 2 hours and 20 minutes, if you drive at a constant speed of 105 miles.
