Question

You are stuck in traffic, and you are going to be late for your first meeting with a potential customer. You are traveling at 15 miles an hour and have 7 miles to go. If it is 8:30 a.m., at what time can you expect to arrive if you keep traveling at that speed?

Solution

Verified
Step 1
1 of 2

Distance = 7 miles Current time = 8:30 a.m. Rate = 15 miles an hour

Distance = Time x Rate Time = Distance / Rate Time = 7 miles / 15 miles an hour Time = 0.47 hour Time = 60 min x 0.47 Time = 28 min

Arrive time = (Current time) + (Time) Arrive time = 8 h 30 min + 28 min Arrive time = 8:58 a.m.

If you keep traveling at that speed you can expect to arrive at 8:58 a.m.
