    Finding speed given time and distance.

    The distance from Boston to New Haven is 120 miles. A car leaves Boston at 10 A.M. and gets to New Haven just in time for lunch, at exactly 12 noon. What is the speed of the car?

\text{speed} = \frac{\text{distance}}{\text{time}} = \frac{120 \text{ miles}}{2 \text{ hours}} = 60 \text{ miles per hour}<br />
