... then it would travel 100 ft in 1 whole second, wouldn't it?A train travels 20 feet in 1/5 second
Hello,
I'm new in town! I'm about to start an online undergrad program getting my BA. I still have trouble with math and it is my worst subject. I did fine with Algebra but everything else are cruel to me. I need help on how to figure out this problem: A train travels 20 feet in 1/5 second. At this same
speed, how many feet will it travel in three seconds?
Thank you for anyone who can help walk me in solving this.
For speed/time/distance problems, remember that
You're given that the train traveled 20 feet in 1/5 seconds. So you can plug it in the speed formula to get the speed of the train.
Now you want to know how far it will travel in 3 seconds. You can rearrange the original formula so that you have .
Now you can plug in 3 and the speed you got from the original formula to find the distance the train travels in 3 seconds.
