    Distance and time

    I cannot remember how to do either of these problems.

    1) If I travel 35 miles per hour how far can I travel in 6 minutes?


    2) Which way would you arrive at the store first? You can drive 35 mph for 5 miles or 55 mph for 8 miles. Please explain.


    Thank you.

    Solve for x in \displaystyle 35 = \frac{5}{x} should give you how long it takes in hours.

    The store is 5 miles away if I travel 35 miles per hour. I can go a different way at 55 miles per hour for 8 miles. I need to find the time for each. That formula should work I would just replace "6" with x
