    What's the formula?

    Not quite sure how to work this one out. Please help me out. Thanks so much.

    John is traveling to a meeting that is 28 miles away. He needs to be there in 30 minutes. How fast does he need to go to make it to the meeting on time?

    Speed = distance/time

    with both expressed in appropriate units, miles and hours seems a good idea.
