Speed (in miles/hour) = distance (miles) / time (hours= 75/ (120/60) = 37.5 miles/hour

D=rt means: Distance= Rate X Time Rate affects the equation d=rt like so: rate= Distance / Time Say you had to find the time it took (in hours) for a car that traveled at a speed of 40 miles per hour to travel 120 miles. First we define our variables: The rate (r) at which the car was traveling at is 40 miles per hour. The distance (d) was 120 miles. We don't know the time it took, so we'll call that "t" and solve for it now. Plug the numbers into the equation "d=rt": (120)=(40)(t) 120=40t 120/40=40t/40 To isolate the variable, divide both sides by 40. 3=t The time is 3 hours. See? Easy as pie (or easy as pi, as the case may be). Hope that answers your question-ujhk77

Thus the distance is 3.5*120 = 420 miles.

The answer depend on the speed you are traveling. Time = distance / speed So for example at 60 mph Time = 120/60 = 2 hours

120 miles / 3 hours = 40 miles per hour

120 ÷ 5 = 24 hours.

24 hours.

It will take a sailboat 24 hours traveling at 5 miles per hour to sail 120 miles.

It will take a sailboat 24 hours traveling at 5 miles per hour to sail 120 miles.

distance = rate * time 120 miles = 70mph * t t = 120 miles / 70 mph ~= 1.71 hours or 1 hour 42 minutes 52 seconds

When rates are expressed as a quantity of 1, such as 2 feet per second or 5 miles per hour, they are called unit rates. If you have a multiple-unit rate such as 120 students for every 3 buses, and want to find the single-unit rate, write a ratio equal to the multiple-unit rate with 1 as the second term.

It is 5 miles per hour.

(120 miles)/(46 miles/hour) = 2.609 hours ---> 2 hours and 36 minutes.

5 mile/per hour need to travel 120 miles so S=vt t=S/v t=120/5=24 hours

120 x 8 = 960 miles.
