How long does it take to drive 4 miles at the speed of 70 MPH

Report as

You need to know how long it takes to go 1 mile: If you do 70 in an hour, or 60 minutes, then it will take a bit less than a minute to go 1 mile ... in fact, 6/7 of a minute. This is 51.4 seconds: so, it will take 206 seconds to go 4 miles, which is 3 minutes and 26 seconds.

OK, Laura, that's the homework done - just look back and be sure you know how it was done, for next time!

I know this#039;ll get zapped by Ask, but, really? You don#039;t have a calculator? Ok, just this one time, 4.6 miles

Huh??? 4.6 miles is not time.

Wow, I sure misread that question. I was how far.

Last week I was curious about how long it took to drive one mile at 70 miles an hour. I checked my watches second hand while I was driving and discovered it took me about 45 seconds to go a mile. So I'll say about 3 minutes for 4 miles.
