If the lake is 60 miles away, and Rene is driving at 40 miles per hour the entire time, how long will it take her to get to the lake?
I THINK IT MIGHT TAKE HER 1 HOUR AND A HALF.
an hour and a half
An hour and 20 minutes.
60/40 is 1 and 1/2, so 1 hr 30 min.
she needs to travel 60 miles and she is traveling 40 miles an hour.-this means that in 1 hour she would travel 40 miles.-in half an hour she would travel 20 miles 40/2=20.so if you add these together than you have 60 miles in an hour and a half.you could also go like this. 60/40=1.5 hours.This equation will be easyer to use for questions with larger distances.
