rate x time=distance

120MPH for 1 hour=120 miles…:)

or distance divided by time=rate

February 2nd, 2011 @6:28 am

v=d/t

t=d/v

February 2nd, 2011 @6:42 am

Time = distance/velocity

t = d/v

February 2nd, 2011 @7:34 am

distance= rate x time

The other two answer are on the right train, but in the wrong boxcar!

Distance = Speed * Time

Therefore

Time = Distance/Speed

Simple enough??

If you are presented with a word problem associated with this relationship, be very careful with the units (eg Miles per Hour vs. Feet/Minute etc.

The basic equation is :-

Speed(S) = Distance(D) / Time(T)

S = D/T

This can be algebraically re-arranged:-

D = S x T

Distance = Speed x Time

&

T = D/S

Time = Distance / Speed

Distance = time / speed.

Basic relationship is:

Speed = distance/time

which can be rearranged to

Distance = speed * time

and

Time = distance/speed

here it is: time = t , where ‘t’ is the variable for time.
